Guess for some people it is just an addiction to build up a huge stash of pictures they like.

I've had a time i was doing the same on pinterest, with every picture you click you get new suggestions and you put them all in your boards sorted by material/colour/brand. And before you know it you have thousands of pictures saved... and do nothing with them. I doubt the person with 48,000 images saved actually looks at them anymore. It just becomes collecting to collect.

And Pinterest should figure out how to protect copyrights: their whole company is based on picture theft and there are examples enough of profiles copying other profiles and the original uploaders being kicked off for copyright violations and the copycats now being the "rightful owners" for pinterest. I am absolutely no fan of google and hope their parent company gets sued and will be split up anytime soon, but maybe google should add a function to save images found with "google images" and drive Pinterest out of business that way. Pinterest is a concenpt that adds so little: folders to save pictures you found elsewhere.

What I do object to is the morons who then decide to upload the images on to platforms like Pinterest, Flickr, Insta etc and create accounts with literally thousands of images on them, one account removed by Pinterest earlier in the year had around 48,000 images on it, I’d love to know what people get from creating such vast collections of images

I accept I'll never beat these morons but it wont stop me trying to protect what is mine
I think these are kiddies begging for attention. In the 90s a lot of Web forums had Threads like What is your favorite Prom?" where everyone posted image of prom girls he finds sexy. This threads were all created by teens. Twens and thirds mentioned "What should this thread be for? If i want to see sexy girls i use google" So maybe the pinterest fake Accounts are the 2020 form of such image collection threads,
PVC is sexy.

I see one of the creeps on Pinterest has four accounts and not an original image in sight, although they do seem to have a passion for saving the same images numerous times, maybe all that right hand action has damaged his eyesight as well as his brain

lol, of course! What else would the little w*nker be doing?

If he knocked one out (a technical term) every time he saved an image he'd have drowned by now, lol

Certainly not the main problem but anyone posting other peoples videos/ images without permission is a problem IMHO
