Deceptive download

I was just sent a large file - ironically by a usability supplier.  I recieved the email saying "you have been sent a large file - click here to download it".  With services like YouSendIt or WeTransfer, what follow is a pretty simple experience.  But with Sendspace, I was faced with one of the most deceptive interfaces I've seen: 

 Take a look at the interface above and guess which link needs to be clicked to download the large file I've been sent...

Nope, it's not the black "Download" button...


Nope, it's not the yellow "Download" button...

Nope, it's not even the link that says, "Click here to start download".

It's the little blue link low on the page stating "Chlick here to start download from Sendspace"
