Submission + - Skype forces Skype Home pop-ups despite complaints (skype.com)

elliot.mackenzie writes: "Skype Home is a pop-up page now built into Skype which supplies links to Facebook and Skype advertisements. Every time a user starts Skype or their internet connection resets this screen pops-up and occupies most of the screen, and it cannot be disabled. If you happen to have a poor or variable internet connection, this can be hundreds of times a day. The issue affects both paying and non-paying users alike, and also impacts the so-called "Professional" version.

The complaints are now so common that it shows up as a link in the first hit for "Skype Home" on Google, yet Skype remains utterly silent on the issue."
