Skype is kind of like those old roach motels - you can check in, but you never check out. Honestly, there is no way to delete a skype account. The best you can do is fill in the blanks on your profile with gibberish. You can’t even erase your info and leave it blank, it won’t allow that. You HAVE to put something in there and your account will still exist. I realize that it might sound like I am kidding, but I am dead serious.
