    Skype requests

    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.
    We, the willing, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, that we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

    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
    Go where you are celebrated not tolerated.

    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
