Why do Skype messages go missing?

Do you sometimes find that Skype messages simply don't arrive? It's definintely not as reliable as texting or emailing in my experience.

I don't know if it's because I'm in Ireland, but I've found Skype to be the worst IM service EVER. I tried it on 6 - 7 phones, different networks, on PCs, laptops, windows, Ubuntu etc etc... I get nothing for days, then I get a new message mixed in with 2-weeks old ones. I HATE SKYPE IM !!!

Try WhatsUp Messenger - seems to be good.
Skype is bad with storing messages when you are offline.
