That's only part of the reason, and certainly not a primary one as you only see it when you need to recover your password. The vast majority of regular members will never see it. Another benefit of it is it also makes it extremely difficult for a bot-program to register / take passwords as they can't 'listen' to the ad. I've seen the 'movie captchya' on a lot of sites recently, so it's certainly not just WTF.

As to user-convenience. Can it be a pain? Sure, but it's a once-in-a-blue-moon situation, certainly not something someone will go thru on any regular basis. Unless you're someone who just can't remember their passwords, and if it is there's always the tried & true method of writing the password down somewhere to avoid having to go thru it.
