Mashable shills for Pinterest; Pinterest spams Facebook

The question is who's blowing whom, in return for the ham-fisted shilling that Mashable does for Pinterest.  The endless "articles" are bad enough, but the comment threads after them are gag-inducing.  If you want to read some marketing people's truly clumsy attempt at disguising spam as comments, check this douchebaggery out:

UPDATE: What a surprise, Pinterest was caught spamming people's Facebook friends.  The Next Web has the story here.

UPDATE 3: Mashable banned my account.  HA HA HA!  Obviously I consider this a victory.  Pretty sad, Mashabullshit.
