I don't use rapidshare for their stupid security measures like this. I saw the cat thing and just stopped bother, but you say they have something even worse. At this point in life I've learned to expet things to get worse if they can with this being no exception.
Half of the time when I go download stuff Rapidshare it's Happy Hour, which means you don't have to wait 2+ minutes to download and no security questions. I've found the new captcha to be much less obnoxious and easier to decipher than the cats though.
I understand why it's there, but this stuff is getting annoying. :lol
It's like the internet version of old-school copy protection on pc games - "Turn to page 14 of the manual, find the 5th word of the 2nd paragraph..."
At least I won't have to deal with this bullshit for a whole month. I got my 10000 rapidpoints and a free month of premium. Uploading lots of porn to 4chan will do that for you. I gonna download so much shit now. AHAHAHAHAHA
