Hi!
Over the last 24 hours I've got to 2 incoming requests from new forum members to add them to my skype/icq list, "so that we can talk". I just want to know if other forum users are experiencing the same thing.

And I assume it was a new user you never met before?

If this becomes a trend, I'd like to know about it. We obviously want members to contribute, rather than treat this as a Skype-contact site. :)

Thank you. I'll let you know how things develop.

I got like 50 friend requests from random people I don*t know in the past 2 weeks and have about 300 unaswered messages.

I have no clue whether these extrasocial butterflies are part of the forum or not, but I can definitely state that these duckers are a bit annoying and make it hard to use skype for work.

There's nothing extraordinary about this, since you're a hot one, Babygirl.
It looks suspicious, on the other hand, when ugly and old (and married- in my case) men like myself and FatAndy start to get Skype attention from other girls. That's what we're talking about here.

Tools -> Options -> Privacy is the answer to all your problems - changed the settings ages ago and have lived happily since :)

Max77, As a matter of interest, have you listed your Skype details in your Expat User profile?

No, I don't think I have. Why?

I only asked because some Users detail their Skype contact details on their Expat.Ru Contact Page in the User Panel.

I was just wondering if some 'sniffer' had trawled it from there. But, as you have not detailed your Skype address, I can only assume its been gleaned from somewhere else and that this site remains safe and secure :)

I know FatAndy personally and nobody will be allowed to provide a false information about him at my presence. :evilgrin:

I am amused :11033: Just a single pm here could raise such an intellectual discussion about harrasment in skype! Being a newcomer (however, I got my first registration here about spring 2006! but cannot recover it at the moment) I do really wonder if I still need new friends from this forum :question:

It's OK Tressa, we are a nice bunch of grapes on this forum..

Regular thing I'm afraid. I teach via Skype and get about 2 requests a week from random people with arabic in their profile info. Might be nice guys but have to block them - no time to chat. Thankfully, Skype has turned off the search function in the new version of the program so that makes it less likely that people you don't know will hassle you. Don't know exactly who's hanging around on this forum though...and stalking you!))

My belated thanks to alexomsk for clearing up something that has long puzzled me, namely why I, an infrequent user of Skype, frequently received Skype friend requests from complete unknowns (usually from ladies in Ghana, a country that I've never visited or had the slightest interest in) and also why the unwanted requests seem to have ceased recently. As an even less frequent visitor to this site, I've been spared the barrage of "friend" requests, except for two from Canada: one from an old friend who evidently merely wanted to get in touch for the sake of doing so, since she's never answered my replies, and one from another Canadian whose forum name I forget but who doesn't seem to have posted at all to this site.
