This is ridiculous. If someone can't figure out how to perform multiple md5 hashes they don't deserve to use a computer, not only that, but pretending that this is somehow more secure is just plain stupid. All it would take to defeat this is making your preferred rainbow table generator perform the hash multiple times. If you want to encrypt, use a decent encryption algorithm, if you want to hash use a decent hash algorithm. Simple. Applying the same one multiple times doesn't make it more secure. You may as well implement multiple ROT13.
