...then they fight you...

whats the full quote?

Don't have that at hand, it's just a general reference to the stages of introducing new ideas. Paraphrased somewhat inaccurately: first they ignore you, then they disbelieve laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

Edit: This may be of help: http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Mahatma_Gandhi although its source is disputed. Updated my paraphrasing to reflect.

And, my friends, in this story you have a history of this entire movement. First they ignore you. Then they ridicule you. And then they attack you and want to burn you. And then they build monuments to you. And that, is what is going to happen to the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America.

Why? Bitcoin is bound to get some kind of government response before it can truly take over the world and this may very well be the start of something like that. This is about as frightening as losing your first teeth; nothing but growing pains that will go away after a while.

You could buy Bitcoins with your MTGOXUSD and send to other exchanges with withdrawal methods to your liking.

2011 thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=13547.0

Los desesperados publican que lo inventó el rey que rabió, porque todo son en el rabias y mas rabias, disgustos y mas disgustos, pezares y mas pezares; si el que compra algunas partidas vé que baxan, rabia de haver comprado; si suben, rabia de que no compró mas; si compra, suben, vende, gana y buelan aun á mas alto precio del que ha vendido; rabia de que vendió por menor precio: si no compra ni vende y ván subiendo, rabia de que haviendo tenido impulsos de comprar, no llegó á lograr los impulsos; si van baxando, rabia de que, haviendo tenido amagos de vender, no se resolvió á gozar los amagos; si le dan algun consejo y acierta, rabia de que no se lo dieron antes; si yerra, rabia de que se lo dieron; con que todo son inquietudes, todo arrepentimientos, tododelirios, luchando siempre lo insufrible con lo feliz, lo indomito con lo tranquilo y lo rabioso con lo deleytable.

Lets hope that Gox has been playing by the rules in all jurisdictions. It would really suck if it turns out that they haven't.

I doubt they've followed all of the DHS' Double Secret Probation rules.

Did you add the "seizing" wording to your email or is everyone else getting a different email?

Only thing I did with the email is remove my name.

I'm actually quite impressed at the price recovery.  We're already back up to $115.40 after a massive 50k sell off.  2 weeks ago this would have dipped the price of BTC under $90.

Thank you panic sellers, I've been waiting for a good time to pick up some more coins.

Wow yeah I see a dip, looked again, and we're back up.

Glad I pulled my coins off Gox but they + Dwolla had been my preferred method for transfer since it was so easy and fast.

Oh Loaded, who art up in Mt. Gox, hallowed be thy name!  Thy dollars rain, thy will be done, on BTCUSD.  Give us this day our daily 10% 30%, and forgive the bears, as we have bought their bitcoins.  And lead us into quadruple digits

I don't know, I'm more concerned with Angelina Jolie's breasts at the moment. This will blow over. The world as we know it will be here tomorrow.
