Mildly annoying CAPTCHA on my.sapien.com

When logging on to the registered user download page on my.sapien.com, a CAPTCHA needs to be entered even if you already have an account with a userid and password. This is the only site I've come across that needs a CAPTCHA when logging on to an existing account. It's not a huge deal, since I only go to the download page rarely (when there's a new update), but it is a minor annoyance that I think is probably unnecessary, and I wish it could be removed.

We've had a number of instances where "bots" were attempting to log in using known usernames and random passwords. We feel it is necessary to help prevent this type of abuse.
