I missed out on so many good chances to trade the volatility over the last few days.  Gox sat on a nice sell order of mine after it traded thru that level and then they crashed.  When they reopened much lower after the trading halt, they again failed to execute my buys all way up, then they crashed again!  They then took 40+ confirms to credit my account with some fresh coins to allow me to fully take advantage of a another good sell level when they came back.  By the time they credited i was back to being a buyer.

Long story short, i got goxxed, deep and hard over and over and over again.   All my funds have been re-invested in coins and tx'd to my client.

I will never do business with gox again.  I don't know about these other exchanges either, right now i am content to just hold my balance of btc, and not give a shit about any potential deflation of the "bubble" if it happens.  I'll set aside money over time and figure out a way to buy from private parties or at meetups.  

I take this as my first step toward Bitcoin exchange sobriety.  Until better controls and confidence can be had in ANY of these exchanges, we all need to stop doing business with them.  I see that so clearly now, cause the liquor helps me think, Randy.

I encourage u to reply to this thread by quoting and endorsing my pledge:

Until there is better proof of trust & security,
I will forever be, exchange sober!
I will never forget the Goxxing I took!
Fool me once, shame on Gox
Fool me again..
You can't get fooled again!
I forever pledge to never be Goxxed again!

Sincerely, one day at a time, Doobadoo
