Well, Jesus Christ. Sorry if I'm an imbecile for sending to the wrong support list.

This is not the bug reporting system.  Instructions for that can be found at

However, Pidgin does not officially support Skype and is unlikely ever to do so.  I am not sure of the legality of any third party plug-in, but if you are having problems with one, you need to take it up with its developers.

I'm assuming that you are only using Skype services.  If you are using a mix of services, the identity of the other service is also important.
