    Skype spam?

    I recently subscribed to Skype and installed a webcam. It works fine, have talked with Jay and others (have to remember to close my robe in the a.m. ) . But, lately, I have been getting notices like "nxtzlr wants to talk to you". I ignore these but do wonder wassup.

    There is spam everywhere..

    You can set Skype to ignore each of these as they pop in. Of course there will be replacements. I haven't found them to be real troublesome.

    Frank, mine is set up so that only people on my contact list can see I'm online.

    If you promise to keep your robe closed, I'd love to have a chat with you one day

    I probably get them about once a week too, but not on there as much as I used to be. I usually click the block button and report them if there's content that warrants it.
