I was this far away from actually removing the button entirely, but at the last minute I found a method that seems to work. It uses Pinterest's "find" functionality which searches for pins based on URL and allows you to create a new pin using any image it scrapes from that URL. Seems to work ok.

Unfortunately the new approach does not work with iOS so we may have to explore another approach. The original share URL may work with some changes.
