    Had my first (2) cases of Skype spam today.

    Anyone else had it yet?

    What is it and how does it differ from other spam?

    Boy, don't I feel dumb...

    Skype (IPA pronunciation: [skɑɪp], i.e. "skype") is a proprietary peer-to-peer Internet telephony (VoIP) network founded by the entrepreneurs Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis, also founders of the file sharing application Kazaa. It competes against existing open VoIP protocols such as SIP, IAX, and H.323. The Skype Group, acquired by eBay in October 2005, is headquartered in Luxembourg, with offices in London and Tallinn. It has experienced rapid growth in both popular usage and software development since launch, both of its free and its paid services.

    Oh man. That is hideous. I haven't had anything like that happen to me.
