If you don't care about your local data (chat history etc), you can just uninstall skype, afterwards delete the two folders located in your Application Data (Win XP) or AppData (Win 7) folder, named "Skype" and "skypePM" (because uninstalling won't delete them) and reinstall skype. Skype Home updates will be wiped out and only new updates by people on your contact list will show.
Here are the two work-arounds that I use:
First, be sure that contacts I no longer want to hear from again are both Blocked and removed from my Contact list. Removing a contact from your contact list will not delete their name from your Blocked contacts.
Second, on the Home Screen, I click that tiny little "x" in the upper left corner of any "mood messages" or updates posted by the contact.
Then choose Hide all by [the contact's name as it is displayed on Skype].
Just a thought.
Thanks for the information. This however is still not resolving the initial issue reported under this thread which is the lack of ability to remove a self added mood or comment.
It seems rather unprofessional that one cannot update or modify a previously added mood. I suppose the question to be asked is who own's my mood? Skype or I?
I initially reported this issue the day after the functionality was removed.

Thank you for your note, and for following up so swiftly! I have two pet peeves with Skype: this Skype Home and "mood message" thing -- and I contribute regularly to threads related to not being able to adjust the font size in the GUI.
Agree with you. Hope it's figured out, although I realize that means whatever edits/removals/changes we make on our end would have to be sent through our contact list, which I could see creating processing issues. We can still hope!
Got a little problem when it comes to this.
I can see the "X", but when i move the mouse to click it - it disappears!
What to do to fix it?
There should be a option to hide ALL mood updates from all!
For anyone still curious about this issue, theres a forum post already explaining how to take care of the issue. go to appdata > roaming > skype > (your skype username) > and delete any file that starts with keyval. I deleted the files and it took care of the problem. Im not taking credit for this answer like i said i read it somewhere else but the above is the directory on where to find it.
