I'm certain that most people are unaware of this. However, considering that
their terms can change at any time without notice to the user, this clause
seems to add insult to injury a little bit. So, I think that specifically
because of that any-time-without-notification practice users need to be
aware that they have some power here, if a bit cumbersome to use.

Title: You can reject changes to Skype's arbitration and class action terms

Topic: user-choice

Summary: If you don't like any changes Skype makes to the paragraph dealing
with arbitration and class action, you can write to them and reject those
changes, provided you do so within 30 days of the changes. This point seems
a bit less effective when coupled with the fact that they can change their
terms at any time without notifying users.

Score: 20 (good)

Skype only accepts a written message to an address they define in their terms and they can change that address at any time without notifying the user. That is as hard as Skype can make legally make it.
