There is an option to only receive calls or IM's from ppl in your
contact list. thats works pretty well unless your trying to use SkypeIn
for a mainline.
I use skype with libpurple and add it to Pidgin. I now have jabber,
skype, and facebook in one client. how sweet it is. I have one fmaily
member that only uses skype, so IM'ing them requires.
