At last. I'm surprised nobody thought of implementing this earlier. I thought about it, but this being a direct attack on Dropbox, I don't see much value in it. Apart from being unethical, it will only force Dropbox to either remove this very useful feature, or implement a challenge-like system which will render this useless. This will be short-lived code if it spreads.

In fact, I think this "feature" is one of the (many) reasons why Dropbox doesn't have an opensource client. And it isn't exposed it in its so-called "API".

Edit: I just saw that they killed the feature: http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=2483053
