Automated Download Scripts vs RapidShare: Cats!

RapidShare wins the “Most Annoying Anti Download Script” award!

Ugh, for real? Yes, it is real.

Something tells me RapidShare hates automated download scripts more than any other service that provides free space for sharing purposes! I gotta say, this is either the best attempt to get me to go premium for any service or the worst attempt to get me to go premium for any service. It is so confusing that even I have not figured it out yet.

Anyway, since the verification code is 4 characters, I think the easiest way to do this is actually not to search for the characters with that particular cat graphic but the ones that do not look like it. That way, you only have to figure out which ones, usually just 1 or 2, are out of the ordinary and simply skip them.

    I know! I’ve had to spend numerous tries to download such a small file! It took me about 30 minutes to solve it, thats why i searched google for help on it.

    Why don’t they just remove the “free download” button entirely? This is fucking retarded.. and bots will have no trouble with it since it’s just the same two pictures repeated every time..
