    Sad to say ive never been a big fan of these crypto currencies to begin with (since ive been pretty open on my opinion towards them) so to me while I do say that the people did not deserve what happened I feel like people should also be aware and store their coins on their own machines.

    Using this exchange was the equivalent of throwing it in the air since a virtual currency on something so new is basically asking hackers to steal them.

    Thing is people were extremely pathetically stupid for believing in MT Gox when it was blatantly obvious they wernt up to any good, I would have taken my bitcoins out of MT Gox AGES AGO I dont take stupid excuses from anyone and when they start messing you around you get out FAST!

    Exchanges are good like btc-e they are a good exchange never ever had any problem with them at all they are straight to the matter at hand unlike MT Gox telling you 5years after the damage is done then blaming it on hackers.

    I don't have the money to be in these things, but isn't having bitcoins in Mt.Gox now equivalent to having money in a failed investment....I know a lady that made a supposedly safe long term investment for her daughter. Years later she gets a letter telling her that due to a bad investment decision by the firm she will be getting 10 cents on the dollar for all the money invested. Oh, and thanks for doing business with us!
