Have you already tried to contact they're suppoort?
They ansewered me quite fast, last time it happend.
Yes, they answered after 24 hours. They demand my photo ID. Seems to be Mt.Gox started to gather personal info and photo IDs of traders by random locking accounts and taking money as a hostage. I have strange conversation with support.
First they states:
Thank you for contacting us. In response to an increased incidence of phishing and hacking attempts made against Mt.Gox and its users, stricter security precautions have been implemented to protect our users and their funds. Should suspicious activity be detected in relation to an Mt.Gox account, the ability to withdraw funds will be temporarily suspended until it can be confirmed that the owner of the account is in fact still in control.
--This... "precautions" startted apply after 09/12/2011.
--And it's lie, they fully blocked my account for 7 hours, and after 7 hours they blocked withdraw only.
Then I refuse provide my ID without strong evidence of "phishing and hacking attempts" they change their mind:
The indicated phishing and hacking attemps were not performed by you but by other users trying to access your account. This is only a security measure to ensure the rightful owner is trying to access and withdraw from the account.
--
They refuse any compromise that I suggested and they refuse to return my money.
Newbies be careful! If you want to trade on Mt.Gox you must provide your photo IDs as soon as possible to prevent loosing profit or money by sudden lockout your account, and if you want trade anonymously (as I did) please consider another trading place.


Hum... How can they look at my picture and certify it's me?
With Netteler, they asked for my drivers license upon registration on the site, and it's quite legit, since it's a legal way to prove your ID so they could send me their credit card.
Although I agree that MtGox should assume the same level of responsibility, I find it illogical to make that to unlock one account instead of making it mandatory in registration.
To be honest, I wouldn't trust that method: if their database was hacked once, what would happen if the hacker had a picture of my drivers license?

Hum... How can they look at my picture and certify it's me?
They can request another photo ID and compare photos, and they demand utility bills.

Although I agree that MtGox should assume the same level of responsibility, I find it illogical to make that to unlock one account instead of making it mandatory in registration.
They doesn't have Terms of use and Privacy Policy, I request Privacy policy twice, first they ignore my question, and then I repeat my question they say: We are a secure verified company. Please read the following announcement. https://mtgox.zendesk.com/entries/20395323-mt-gox-k-k-tibanne-now-verified-by-verisign
But it only confirms company identity and properly SSL encryption nothing more. They not promise anything and guarantee nothing.

To be honest, I wouldn't trust that method: if their database was hacked once, what would happen if the hacker had a picture of my drivers license?
I refused provide any personal information without any guarantee and properly Privacy Policy and loose my $160.  Angry

Hello!

I'm unabashedly an alter-ego.  Sometimes I want to say things that are too dark, off-color, or politically unpopular to say as myself.

Despite my name, this account isn't to reply to myself to create false consensus.  I only use it for anonymity.

Hey there. I'm new to the whole bitcoin concept but from what Ive read so far it sounds pretty interesting.  I'm approaching this as a hobby for now until I more fully grasp the whole tech part of it.  Mining sounds interesting but complicated to the tech laymen like myself.  Time to read up!

Sure, I can introduce myself.

They call me Mr. Change. Well, "They" is a bit of a stretch. I call myself that. :-)

I'm fascinated by the idea of bitcoins. I disparaged it a few months ago (when I should have been getting into it at $0.10/BTC! Angry ) and am still doubtful about its odds of survival as a viable currency. At the very least, it's a step in the right direction.

Greetings friends! Call me AndyR, Andy, or Andrew if you please, and know that I am a man of purpose. Know that I come before you a man of integrity and honor. I am a man who knows that only hard work and responsibility will make a man complete. See before you not a parasite, but a man who humbly asks you judge him complete by that measure.

It is a wonder that I have not joined these discussions earlier, for I have been a miner for some time now, and believe heartily in the future of Bitcoin. It has been clear to me for many years, as I'm sure it has been to many, if not most of you, that the pernicious fiat currencies of the world are but a precarious financial skeleton, with nought but skin upon them to hide the hollows inside. They will fall soon, as they must, and I hope - believe! - that it shall be Bitcoin that brings the world back to financial right! Truly a currency of the people and by the people, and we, the people, will carry it forward through the ruin of the old government reserves with their baseless smoke and mirrors.

Come friends and let each man work for himself, and by so doing, work for the good of all. We will make the world new.

Is not a man entitled to the sweat of his brow?

Hello everyone Smiley I've been bitcoining for a while now. I'm currently running experiments using evolutionary neural networks to attempt to examine or predict as to how the price of bitcoins might change over time - this is a pretty common technique used by big investment firms as a source of stock market information, but bitcoin is a more attractive domain since there are fewer sources of uncertainty than in the "big boy" stock market, making tweaking and fine-tuning faster. Hoping to share my results+discussion here some time soon!
