how many of these online wallets sites got "hacked" and shutdown? How many times did the users get their btc back? Stats are not in the users' favor.

Keep this thread alive, look at all the numbnuts on these forums giving people bad advice!

More security and less litigation in the post-theft anaylsis will be best, if bitcoin is not to be destroyed. 
No, how about lets not. Lets just hope that this one blows over without a shitfit occurring, and not let the government get involved with the BTC rally going on right now.

"Blow over" means what, that more scum gets to trick newbies into losing their coins?  IS that what you think will make bitcoin successful?

IT security is an irreducable component of bitcoin having any endurance into its proposed decades-long life.  This won't "blow over" though the price may still rise, it only encourages more theft.

Sure, all the smart little nerds can now mock people as they are doing, "Dood you had an online wallet?!  Sucks for you, haha!" and crap like that, but in the end, people are not going to keep their wallet offline in armory, they will want web based wallets that have actual people behind them who understand IT security.

^ thanks

seems to be a good sticky for the newbie forum here, since they're (newbies) likely to be the most victimized as this goes on and criminals sink their own ships and run with the bag.  Hoping i-w does right and restores coins.

Make coin thieves miserable, says I.
