I have been using Skype for more than a year. I believe It's fast and reliable than other IMs. I never experienced this but I got an unknown friend request which was actually was a spam bot. It had nothing to do but just spam his website. I know Yahoo and MSN/Hotmail Messengers had issues with spam bots. But with Skype is something that has disappointed me. Anyone has this issue? This is the first time for me so, I think you guys want to tell me more about it If you have experienced it before?
