Ya - CF has just started doing that for me - 9-11 clicks just to visit a webpage hosted by them.
I use a fulltime VPN just for privacy (Live in Australia - 'nuff said.), I tend to be very "non-persistent" with my browsing, and I'm more likely-as-not to click away from the site, rather than go through a "pick the picture" captcha (with confirmatory dialogue boxes BEFORE and AFTER the "game". )
El-Reg. Anything you can do your end to stop this short of bullshit?
