    Yeah, someone posted that a couple days ago. I read it. Yeah, Skype is wonderfully secure.



    Also, it is a P2P-based service. If you install it in your network, you open your network to that service (SUPERNODE). In many cases, that constitutes a violation of the AUP in many organizations. From the state (U.S.) perspective, there are policies against using state-owned networks for private activities and access. Also, users could be charged on laws related to "theft of state services."

    Well,

    As I commented a while back Skype = Hype

    They were desperately trying to sell the operation, and no great wonder in that?

    They are ripping off Telcos................and Telcos are big boys.................their moderators certainly get a long brown coat and tall boots

    Unless you are connecting via CB powered by you pedalling a bicycle, just think about it?
