Why did Skype take so long to acknowledge the problem?

Why did Skype try to fob off the problems on third party manufacturers?

Doesn't the term "Skype certified" represent a legal and moral obligation on Skype to ensure service?

Why is Skype customer support so poor?


I've been a Skype user since about Skype 0.6 or 0.9. I wrote glowing articles about Skype for the publications I worked for in South Africa. This sort of high-handedness and complete disregard for your customers really pisses me off.

My DualPhone was out over the weekend.  I was one who reported the problem.  It seems to be fixed as of this morning.  Thank you.

My Skype is connected. I can make and receive calls.

**BUT** no one can hear me.

Not only have I loss conection but a friend I skyped when I was fortunate to have a connection for 5 minutes ended up with my complete contacted list and I ended up with, not only his contact list but also his account. This is a very serious breach of privacy and when I informed them they seemed at best indefferent
