Actually, I am positive I am one of the oldest users of bitcoin. Helped Satoshi take this off the ground.
then why dont you know that the robber - if successful - can launder his bitcoins without MtGox?
just sell and buy on another exchange. exchange one BTC for another. go back to MtGox for withdrawal.
Those other exchangers you talk about, only exist because of MT GOX, they exchange only trusting that big mt gox is there to back up their exchange. Like bank of america and the FED. Its takes huge balls to start exchanging coins for real HARD cash, MT gox took the lead, other followed trusting. do you understand?
