So there is a simple trick to getting Skype not resolvable
I would recommend still allowing direct connections to contacts and the basic
but it works for meh maybe it works for you

YOU MUST HAVE YOUR SKYPE OFF!
1. Find your skype directory
2. There should be a folder with your skype username, open it.
3. Find a file called "config.xml"
4. Find the line "<Account>"
5. Directly after that line put the line " <PrivateSkypeMode>1</PrivateSkypeMode> "
6. Save the file
7. Restart your skype

Now when someone tries to resolve your IP through Skype it'll return as "No IP found"
This is used for Linux and Os x (mac). On linux you can change the ports but on mac you don't so this is a solution!

Notes: For some reason the "<PrivateSkypeMode>1</PrivateSkypeMode>" gets moved to the bottom. Don't worry it still works.
