Where do you buy and sell bitcoins?

Which exchanges do you trust, and to what extent, and why?

If there is something that will make Bitcoin succeed, it is growth of utility - greater quantity and variety of goods and services offered for BTC. If there is something that will make Bitcoin fail, it is the prevalence of users convinced that BTC is a magic box that will turn them into millionaires, and of the con-artists who have followed them here to devour them.

I use BTC-e. I trust them 100%.
https://btc-e.com

I have never had a problem there and I actually fucked up, sending a shitload of BTC to a NMC address (thanks Window's Clipboard) and they were able to send them to the right place for me in the end.
They saved my butt and I am always grateful for that.

Their security is also top notch. I like the email confirmation for withdrawals as well.
(transfers out of the exchange are frozen till you get a confirmation email and click the confirmation link etc. Email address can not be changed)

I more or less trust Mt. Gox, but I use CampBX much more often. I don't really trust the site much; I rarely keep any funds on there for very long at all. I don't have any reason to distrust them besides that I'm paranoid. Dwolla there is super easy.

I recall looking into BTC-e previously, only to discover that they didn't accept USA customers. Do you know whether this is still the case?

I have never been made aware of that, although I am Canadian.
