Microsoft boasted it had rebuilt Skype 'from the ground up'. Instead, it should have buried it

Skype (and MSFT), utter, utter, shite!

Within months of MSFT taking control I lost my very early, firstname.lastname, Skype account, locked for no valid reason - to unblock tell us the month and year you created your account, and the exact balance, and which was the larger? Jesus left or right testicle, ad infinitum.

Just had the 4th blocked after 3 weeks, and a single use, due to possible spamming, trying to unblock entails constant email/SMS code loops. It's required for my latest assignment otherwise I'd fuck it off, and I'm trying desperately to get them to move to something else.

To top it off now there are no usernames only tel. or email.

MSN messenger was pretty awesome tbh, and early skype was even better... Ah, halcyon days..
