Have you or anyone else come up with a solution for this?

What you're trying to do is device specific.  I know how to do it in Windows but I'm clueless when it comes to Mac.

 

I've moved the thread to the Mac forum where it's more likely someone will be able to provide a relevant answer.

Try this: in the Finder, hit CMD-SHIFT-g.  To to ~/Library/Application Support/Skype.  Then simply delete the folders with the squatters' names in it.  That should do it.  I hope.

How would you do it in Windows? Windows 7 to be specific.

It baffles me why you'd post a Windows question here in the Mac forum, but you can find the answer in <gasp> the Windows forum:
