Pet Peeve about Skype users
January 14, 2009 · 4 Comments
Recently I've received a number of "add contact" requests from people on Skype who have nicknames I don't recognize, who have not completed their profiles and who don't put any information in their "add" request. Why do such people think I'm going to accept their add contact request? I generally just block them since they seem to have such poor manners (and one such user actually called me twice via Skype without introducing themselves and then pulled me into a conference call with the Skype echo tester!). So, if you're going to add me to your Skype contacts, please at least say who you are and how you know me when you send the "add contact" request! Better still, fill out your Skype profile with your full name and blog / website address so folks have some context.
