    Good Morning,

    While I like the idea of being able to win a free 3D-Printer the site may be taking it a bit too far with all of the social media posts. I tried to use three of the entries this morning and they were blocked by the relevant sites, Pintrest, Twitter, and Facebook because they have been flagged by other users as dangerous or spam.

    Perhaps you should throttle back a bit before what is now a relevant site becomes a spam pariah.

    None of my posts were blocked, however, the automated ‘bitly’ link shortened posts that went on to Twitter were bad URLs.

    I tend to agree with you though. I was surprised to see Pinterest and G+ added now too.

    The point of the giveaways is to build up promotion for the site though and the crew is working hard on that so it is a tough call.

    But not everyone has to do every single entry either.

    Hmm I really have to check this out now. I will take the share option away for a couple hours later today to run some tests i think its the bitly links.

    Yep, I got kicked off of Google+ 3D printers group when I posted there about the contest. Seemed a bit harsh by golly ol’ Peter van der Walt.
