Skype’s Stupid Forward Slash (/) AutoCorrect feature

We have to constantly send directory names and folder structures by message over skype and it has this really annoying feature of changing:-


into an error message of:-

Available commands:
/add [skypename]
/giphy [expression] – sends random GIF for given expression (optional)
/alerts off | on [keywords]
/alertson [keywords]
/me [message] – sends special message prepended by your name

This utterly useless feature cannot be switched off either.

I am using the Web version and it took me 5 goes to create a simple group….. I did exactly the same thing and it worked only on the fifth go…. seems the whole platform has become really buggy.

Why does Skype have to annoy people like this?
