It doesn't ban Facebook as Facebook has an e-mail component now. iMessage and AIM both have e-mails associated with them so I don't think they'd get banned. Personally I think it's ridiculous. Why shouldn't convicted sex offenders be able to Skype? Not all of them end up perpetrating again. And will this prevent any abuse? I doubt it. I use a free international calling app on my phone. This also would be banned for sex offenders as it doesn'r have an e-mail component.
