An anonymous reader writes: It seems that Skype and Fring are not getting along so well today. First, Fring made a claim that Skype was blocking Fring and in a subsequent blog post, called Skype cowards. "Now that fring expanded capacity to support the huge demand for video calling for all users, Skype has blocked us from doing so. They are afraid of open mobile communication. Cowards." Skype has responded, stating that Fring’s mis-use of Skype software was damaging their brand and reputation. "there is no truth to Fring’s claims that Skype has blocked it. Fring made the decision to remove Skype functionality on its own."
