I logged into skype successfully. It said, we are logging you out, since you have an old version (the download button on this popup did not work- beside the issue). Opened a new browser tab, downloaded new skype, launched it, login fails, on *st attempt, said I had tried too many times. Waited a while, same problem. What gives, if I was successful already in the start of the process with that login?
I trust that Skype will make this right and come up with a resolution that is fair.
