    The problem is that x64 likes to create billions of accounts to harass you with if AIM is any indicatino. And even with that, blocks don't do much if they keep having their buttbuddies invite you to a conversation, which you can't preemptively decline.
    <!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    Exactly what I said in my previous post. I'd love to ban all of his buttbuddies' asses just for supporting him and convince everyone who isn't one to remove him and his butt buddies from their Skype contacts lists. However, I'm not the one calling the shots around here and its impossible to fully erraticate them anyway.

    But I rest my case. As long as people's contacts still have x64 in their contacts, no one is safe to get onto Skype.

    Would I still be safe if I had my username changed earlier?

    And yes, I changed my password earlier, thanks for the heads-up...

    As long as someone could figure out your old username, then they would still know your password. <_<

    The simplest and fastest method to staying secure is to just use a good password.

    A simple way to check if a password is secure is to use a <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/protect/fraud/passwords/checker.aspx" target="_blank">Password Checker</a>.
