    I have recieveing stupid messages on skype from my friends, co-workers on skype and sometimes on ICQ..There is written somthing in that way - resend it to whole IM contact list or your skype will crash in 48 hours. Really fucking stupid. In period of 3-5 days I keep recieveing it from different people. That is years ago.

    Is there somebody who can explain me why people write, then spam away?

    Thanks

    I didn't say there is no any links in messages, nothing only fact is that message is send multiple times..many many times.. it makes only post traffic to the messanger
