    Skype has long been a stubborn whipping boy for the privacy community--one that not only refuses to make promises about protecting user data from government surveillance, but won't even reveal basic facts about how and when it hands user conversations over to the government. Now, eight months after the voice-over-IP company was officially integrated into Microsoft, a critical mass of privacy activists are demanding answers.

    Bye bye Skype
