The T&Cs don't come off any more scary to me than anyone else that acts as
a carrier for your data. Contrary to some people's views on it's
encryption, it is propriatory (which is bad, m'kay) but there's a real
lack of bad people being prosecuted because of things that could only have
been discovered from their skype conversations, and rumours about both the
US and UK governments trying to pressure skype into making their jobs
As a computer-computer service, it's good value, good enough and
convenient. The SkypeIn and SkypeOut options are pretty comprehensive,
though as they cost money, it'd be nice if the quality was more reliable.
