Looks like Rapidshare's traffic/business may have been taking a nosedive, and their reaction has apparently been to demand that users now pay a monthly/annual fee for any formerly "free" data over 5Gb, otherwise it gets deleted within 24hrs.
Due to the short notice and narrow time-window, many/most users affected may have no short-term option but to comply with the demand.

Some people (not me you understand) might say that the correct term for this sort of thing is "blackmail", but I couldn't possibly comment.

In the past Rapidshare BEEPED its customers over and over and over. Anyone who still is a customer of such a firm deserves this treatment if you ask me (but no one did, I know).
