I'm writing a post about Skype because it appears impossible to actually send a complaint to them. Since MSN and Skype combined (although really it's more like MSN no longer exists, and Skype is the same as it was before) it is possibly the worst instant messaging programme ever. Okay the video calls are still okay - apart from 70% of the time when I try and call my family the camera refuses to work, and if I'm logged into hotmail.com and Skype and someone calls me I get double the ringing on my laptop; but instant messaging isn't instant at all, its slow, delayed and frustrating. I reinstalled Skype in the hope that maybe it would help these problems, and when it didn't I tried to write an email to Skype telling them how bad their system was.
However trying to write a complaint to them is maybe even more frustrating then the instant messaging! Instead of just having an email address to write to, they have lots of drop down menu's that you have to choose from (and the problem you have is never in any of them) and then afterwards you can either write in the "Skype community", which is where all the same complaints are but no one helps or you can get "Chat support" where someone talks with you - although there is a wait time.
If technology is so high to create Ipads and phones that are basically a computer, then why can Skype not get a lousy instant messaging service to work correctly, like MSN has done for the past 10 years?!
After this rant here is a photo of a bunny with an ice cream cone on it's head to calm me and other frustrated Skype users down:
