Block Pinterest's "Promoted" pins.

Is there any way for AdBlock to block "Promoted" pins in Pinterest?

I've checked Pinterest's code, and they don't seem to be using IDs or classes that are unique to Promoted pins, so the usual block-by-CSS functionality won't work.

Maybe AdBlock could detect the text "Promoted by", and use that to block pins, but I don't know if that functionality exists in AdBlock, or if it's something they'd want to add in the future.

Also, it would probably just result in a big hole where the pin would be, since their version of Masonry only positions pins on load rather than dynamically. But at least you'd be able to avoid them, since it's otherwise very hard to see (at a glance) which pins are paid and which aren't.
