Our Opinion

Once the profile is blocked by you on Pinterest, they will never receive notification and not able to pin your posts. If they try to follow you or interact with your post, you will receive the notification. You can not be able to see the blocked person contents and posts as well. If you block a person, the comments or messages sent between the two will be deleted automatically. But the pins and likes do not get deleted and they still remain.
