    Just quick question/rant guys...

    How the fuck you deal with all random skype spammers?

    My problem is... everytime i turn on my skype i got like tons of msgs >hi, buy this, do you need this, can we talk? Please at this, look at my work, look at that, hello sir.... < FUUUUUUUUU!

    Im going kinda mental because i cant spend my whole day blocking ppl on skype.
    And obviously they got my skype ID here on BHW.

    It would be sweet if bhw consider for the future...maybe to hide our skype details for ppl under 50 quality posts.
    I am pretty much sure all this >hi, buy from me< requests are coming from lurkers and newbies who collect our skype ID.

    I dont know if you guys having same problem but it annoys me as fuck.
    Please dont tell me JUST BLOCK THEM....thats what im doing..and im annoyed with it.

    cheers :)

    Man, don't use skype, it's sh$t. Create an account on jabber and you'll be fine, jabber is encrypted, while everyone knows skype isn't secure at all and the government can read everything.

    You read my mind. There was this guy who contacted me about twitter followers and asked me if I wanted to buy some from him. When I refused, he asked me if I sell something else. When I said yes, he dragged me along for about 2 days asking all the pricing and details. NEVER HEARD FROM HIM AFTER THAT!!!
    He just wasted 48 hours of my life :p

    Your idea is good and maybe you should have posted this in the forum suggestion category. I don't have my Skype id publicly displayed and I still get requests from "SEO shops", "SEO experts" and all these craps. This is not happening everyday but still its pretty annoying and I'm wondering from where do they get my id since I've never wrote it anywhere on forum posts.

    Like i said before...i accept everyone from BHW..thats why i have my skype ID here.
    You know...ppl like to get in touch, talk about business and other things.
    I am ok with that...
    But most of the skype requests are from newbies or just random lurkers.

    Anyways...i wont hide my ID..but yeah i got your point, and its not option for me.

    well as the old saying goes,
    if you stick your hand on a hot plate and it burns,
    dont stick your hand on it,
    if you still choose to, then you like being burned

    Not for Instant Messaging. You know what, when you email things, its slower, and definitely will kill half of the convo. I use email only when there is something important. Rest of the chats/discussions go through IMs.
