This is exactly the reason why I am closing my Microsoft account, even if I have to endure the pain of manually saving the data.
Every email account I've had now has its SKYPE equivalent that I had no intention of using or even creating. The email addresses are linked to SKYPE, there is no way of separating them, and I don't want people to search and find my name in SKYPE directory, when it has nothing to do with my wish to communicate OR be found.
And Google is no better, in its different ways. Enough is enough. I am moving from these two giants.
