In an announcement released today, the company said the amount of spam reported on the site has “nose dived” so low that it’s not even a useful metric anymore.
We can dismantle entire attacks in milliseconds, whereas 12 months ago it would have taken us four hours to a day.
According to Pinterest, the system it now has in place responds twice as fast to internal spam request. “Our system’s ability to successfully respond to bad behavior improved from 95 percent to 99.99 percent,” writes Pinterest “Black Ops” manager Marty Weiner.
Weiner says Pinterest’s anti-spam efforts are the result of a system it begin building last year called Stringray, a stream processor and rule engine that can pre-empt spam attacks.
