Really bad message/chat lag in Skype...

[ Edited ]
I'm talking about Skype group Chat here. It seems that people will chat, but I only see/recieve these chat messages hours later. This keeps me from being able to communicate with these people.
How do I fix this?
And BTY, don't feed me this: "Skype Instant Messages are only delivered when both the sender and recipient are online at the same time." Because my Skype is always on, and I'm always signed in.

LOL... Norman....
What do you want me to do? This problem has been ongoing for years but no-one has even bothered to offer a solution. No-one seems to care. And if you haven't noticed, I'm not the only one who's upset enough to use 'unacceptable text.'

Did anyone ever get this solved. I can't have a chat with any without the possibility of lag of like 5 mins or hours between messages. It doesnt happen all the time but it happens.

There is even an urban dictionary entry for this.

 

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Skypwned&defid=2659282

 

A defect that has been around so long that it has a word for it?

 

You are a pathetic software company.

Re: Really bad message/chat lag in Skype...

Completely true, microsoft skype is NO GOOD and no good tech-support, or trained developers.

To have skype from microsoft is like to have a car without wheels...

Tech support gives non-issued replyes... if they loose the manual where they must have some responses i don't know what they would say.
