To all SKYPE users,

I have used the SKYPE internet phone call program for more than a decade now. Some time ago the program declined access and asked for more information; birthdate, telefone numbers, Microsoft user id, address and others. They also asked me to favorit them in Facebook, Twitter and other data collection disservices. Those things have nothing to do with my internet calls and are completely irrelevant information.

I sent them a message and  asked them to cancel my account and demanded my Money back in case the service continues inoperable. They promised to check the issue but have not returned any information for over a week. Therefore, have asked them to cancel the service and pay back my credits in their system. It is a pity since before Microsoft got their hands on SKYPE it has been working just OK. You know that the internet phone calls are recorded by the intelligence disservices, but somehow it did not matter too much. However, recording my calls is illegal and very bad behavior that destroys the trust between a client and the service provider.

I also contacted the credit card company to put the latest credit card payment on hold untill the dispute is resolved or otherwise cancel it.

I'm asking all other SKYPE users to do likewise and send the peeping Toms a clear message. We don"t want you to spy on us! Microsof should change the service to SPYKE, because that describes it better. 

Kind Regards,

Less Prone

why i use a magikJack for 7 years now ;) They want no info....they just want 29.95 a year ;)

Just yesterday I installed Skype in Linux 17. Got rid of windows because of their shitty platform. But went to Skype my daughter in Christchurch NZ and lo and behold insufficient credit. Well I get credit card out to topup and I cant topup in NZ $, only foreign currencies. All seems like a waste of effort. Now that microsoft own it things will not get any better. Windows 8.1 is a fine example of their product. Yeah rite.

MS is more interested in spying than providing a reliable product. I also favor Linux over Windows.

check out "Tails"...on the fly CD OS, (Unix) setup for anonymity and Tor ;)

been messin w/ it for about a week now

 Tails is a live operating system, that you can start on almost any computer from a DVD, USB stick, or SD card. It aims at preserving your privacy and anonymity, and helps you to:

use the Internet anonymously and circumvent censorship;
all connections to the Internet are forced to go through the Tor network;
leave no trace on the computer you are using unless you ask it explicitly;
use state-of-the-art cryptographic tools to encrypt your files, emails and instant messaging.

For help with TAILS, a good starting point is https://tails.boum.org/doc/first_steps/index.en.html.

I'm not confident with TOR, too much government involvement.

Peeling the onion: Almost everyone involved in developing Tor was (or is) funded by the US government

Tor Created for U.S. Gov't Spying
