The new practice of putting advertising into the Skpe user page is TERRIBLE. A user can't even opt out of lookiing at it. I have spent ten minutes trying to get a message through to Microsoft that this practice seriously erodes the viability of Skype! Please cease and desist. At lthe very least you should give the user the opportunity to say no thanks to your partners advertising!!!
I wouldnt mind the ads if they didn't push the person I'm talking to off the viewing screen. I have to open another window to view them through the mini video box. It's rediculous
