You'll love their description of how to use a proxy

"If the above is not possible, Skype versions 0.97 or later can use a HTTPS/SSL proxy. In order to do that, you have to configure the proxy address in Internet Explorer options. Then Skype will be able to use it as well."

So the world slowly adopts the notion that a proxy is a bypass tunnel not a policy enforcement mechanism

less secure."

I wonder if the spyware vendors give them stock options?
