It looks like I didn't succeed in bringing home my message.
The issue is: Bitcoin is still at the very beginning. While I am very smpathetic with people who lost money due to a stolen wallet or a crash at Mt Gox or some other reason - I am a bit upset at those who just consume and, if it does not work exactly as expected, whine and complain.
Why don't you open up a competing exchange, if you do not like Mt Gox ?
Why don't you provide some software fix to improve wallet security ?
Why don't you write up a guid on bitcoin ?
If you want this endeavour to succeed - we all must contribute.
Some do, and some do very much. Thanx to the supporters of bitcoin !
