    "add.me on skype:hasan.blagon019"

    "im interested pm me skype: wigglyfaggot123123"

    "another reddit upvote skype group here"

    Man I hate that shit. Am I alone in this? I understand the business value of a service like Skype, but I hate being inundated with bullshit. Whatever happened to email, or PM's on BHW?

    I honestly think that the Skype group threads should not be allowed, as it is borderline promoting other forums and taking traffic from this site. Of course, I'm a hypocrite in that aspect because of my Slack group, but whatever.

    Never used Skype and probably never will. Wish I had never started to use Whatsapp. Fucking mithering fuckers with nothing better to do in life than constantly ask pointless fucking questions and send stupid pictures. It is due to Whatsapp that I now have to keep my phone on silent to get a minutes peace.

    Add me on skype and you will be told to fuck off and blocked.

    I'm looking for an alternative, skype is extremely shit but sadly there is nothing else out there as widely used.

    I seriously regret posting my Skype on my BHW profile as it has been scraped and even though I removed it long ago, I still get contact requests.
    Now I try to limit it to close contacts and people I actually engage with.
    No longer accept random requests, people love to waste time and beat about the bush.

    I honestly hate skype just because of how intrusive it is on my computer and the resources it uses. I swear it off all the time, then some situation happens that makes it necessary to have and I have to reinstall the damned beast. If I didn't need it I wouldn't even touch the program.

    I use skype but only add Pro/Corporate clients only 17 members in my skype. I don't accept request just like that. I hate to have 1000's of contacts and not know even 100, I keep small but Only those were not disturb me while i am working. & yes I hate reddit /Fiverr exchange type groups. (Done few Fiverr Purchases but Not added all requested.). Skype is good, as it helps sometimes me much to communicate with people I want.

    I used Skype to stay in contact with some friends in a foreign country.
    Maybe I should look out for a Skype Bot calling people with affiliate stuff. Or get a female VA calling guys and sell them dick enlargement ebooks.

    I absolutely hate Skype. I top up their paid phone service once in a while when I need to make an international call, but I'm not some 13 year old girl who has nothing better to do than chat with strangers online.

    I also hate skype, but when chatting with your client you need something real-time, not an email or PM.
    But there are other services, XMPP (jabber) for example is 10000000 times better, but very few people use it. It is open-source and scalable and you have real choice of clients and don't have to use Skype shit.
    ICQ also used to be good but not nowadays. There are tons of other options, but in fact they are of no use since everyone uses Skype.

    I thought it was me.

    I don't ever log into Skype. I stopped using it...in November or December of last year. I don't ever plan to get back on it. If someone wants to contact me, that's what email or a PM is for. And I can choose whether or not I want to respond to those.

    Hint: if your question is stupid, I'm not responding.

    Email has its own importance but it's not IM (Instant messaging). Rapid message exchange, voice and video calls, most people (if not all) doing business seriously do have Skype. Not sure why the hate.
