Another Alex voice scareware robocall to skype. This one I found unusual that it wouldn't let me block it. Any idea why?

Is it just my imagination or did this only start after MS purchased Skype?

I never did move to version 5, and i've never witnessed any such event. (still using version 2.8.0.866 myself, but idunno if it works with Lion).

Hal,

I (too) do like the new Skype and thus use the v2.8.0.866.

AFAIK, it works well with Lion, at least for me.

Do you remember the URL that the robocall was trying to direct you to?

It says Intel under system reqs, so it should be OK with Lion.
