Actually, it would - my parents communicate through skype all the time, and I just got off skype to my girlfriend in puppy (which seems to require me to create a new user everytime I log in :/ ) so although skype works, the page itself is blocked.
Don't worry though Hanumizzle - maddox is blocked too, as is Encyclopedia Dramatica. Facebook and most other communication sites are open. I'm pretty sure Skype is blocked because it bypasses all the telcos here, meaning they don't get their slice of pie. And given the heavily-capitalistic drive here, I can in part understand that.
