"Another painful Skype update"

There was a reason I put off updating for as long as I could, but to my dismay I received an automatic update and yet again all that's been done is worsen the Skype experience. Conversations have become hard to read, far too close together, and unless I'm mistaken and simply haven't explored this new update to its fullest yet from my sheer disgust I cannot find a way of telling when my messages or my chat partner's was sent at, which was a feature I liked a lot - and also to look back at messages months away using a single button. Now my chats are cut horribly and the layout is so disgusting, I cannot see now basic information on my partner's end as such their time and little bits about them, which was also a feature I liked to check up on! Urk, and I haven't even had it for more than ten minutes... If anyone can stop their computer from self-updating now then please do. Please do what I did. I have yet to find the rest of the horrors and lesser features in this new update...
