Skype is hopeless - I have been writing to them about this for a couple of years at least. It is ESSENTIAL that Skype restores this capability, otherwise the value of the program is greatly reduced. It also makes it extremely difficult to put new posts onto the forum - whole program is becoming annoying.

Skype has removed the advance search option due to some users (scammers, spammers, phishers, etc), who are abusing that feature.  Although that feature is made for legitimate users, it was also a very effective tool for suspicious users to easily find their closest prospects.

We need the ability to search by just skype id.  The current search that looks at names, emails, and skype id returns to many results.

Oh, I see. And scammers are too dumb to download v4.2 (or read this thread)?
