To The Morons Running YouTube

Why has YouTube suddenly started asking me to enter a CAPTCHA before I can see a video? Not just once. Every. Single. Time. And it's not just me.

As you will note from that last one, the most common explanation is that it occurs for people behind a proxy. Well, I'm not behind a proxy. I am behind a NAT firewall but I am also the only person making requests from this IP address. Even basic traffic analysis would reveal that there's only one computer making the request. It shouldn't look like a proxy at all. None on this makes any sense so I'm concluding the people who run YouTube are morons. They solve problems by nuking it from orbit.
