Just add a filter to your view that Includes hostname set to your domain name.
That will have a radical effect on your referral spam.

I haven't used Skype in years and I don't intend to relapse :-)
Like I said, use the hostname inclusion filter I mentioned or read the post, you'll find plenty of solutions there.
