Skype buggs me with update, impossible to stop

Skype constantly annoys me with update message. No way to turn it off, only to upgrade or to postpone message to tomorrow.


This constant bugging really annoys. I do not want to take risks with update, I do not need any updates to Skype. But Skype continues to annoy me

No kidding. and especially annoying is when you update and lose functionality.  As an admin I used to be able to send all my contacts to a new hire.  Now i can no longer do that (version 5 I think killed that option).


Please Skype, you have a great product.  But give me the choice WHEN to update and don't harass me every single day.


Where is the option to request a feature Skype - that would be useful too.
