I know some people made trades the other day and quickly cashed out while the market was taking a dive.  Mark said that these people would have negative account balance when they return.  So the person who sold the coins will have their coins back? .  I'm just wondering where they come from.  Mark said in the interview the other night (if I heard correctly) that they aren't taking any losses?

 Huh

Most likely reclaiming the bits of metal from exploded miners video cards. As you know, there is a pervasive trend in MtGox and Stolen BTC posts, at first I thought they were trolling, but I realized the actual effect such threads.

Every time one of the above threads get started, a video card blows up. The miner, dejected and horrified, hurls the smoking relic into the trash, only to be recovered and stripped by a gang of recycling hooligans. Please, don't perpetuate this trend, the difficulty plummeting would send the wrong signal, for sure.

I think its a legitimate question.  If you go to around 18:30 in this video he says they aren't taking a loss except if people want some password card.
