"Only allow contacts to IM me": Bring it back
Since updating to the newest version of Skype, I receive several intrusive and pornographic IMs a day, with pictures. I never had this problem before.
Skype used to have the option to only allow people in your contact list to IM you. Bring it back. It would fix this privacy issue. I don't want to receive unsolicited messages.
Changing the privacy settings as to who can find you does not stop this problem. Besides, it makes sense to be searchable and then just not accept contact requests.
I will be looking for an alternative to Skype if the option to only receive IMs from contacts is not reinstated.
