This is a new, better poll created because the previous one was ridiculously rigged:
( See http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4065.msg60298#msg60298 )

The questions are balanced so there is the same number of negative and positive answers.

There’s no poll (yet?) in this thread.

Please change #3 to something reasonable, perhaps the wording of #2 should go into the spot of #3.

Or, to actually be objective, just go with "do not trust at all, somewhat distrust, ... etc ..., somewhat trust , completely trust".

How do you like it now ?

Almost. Mt. Gox is not MD Gox, so I'd sooner say that I trust it/him with significant sums of money rather than with my life.

I think he's OK... but not knowing where to step into.
Wants to run a clearly black exchange, but to abide with law. Question is "what law"?! US law?! Why?! Not all his costumers are American, nor he for what it seams. Also there're thousands of "laws" around...  Roll Eyes

The thing that basically perked me here is that schizoid black/white market dual identity. Mtgox demonstrated to be inconsistent in this regard. I wish there was some clarity.
(...)
Or is it a "schizoid gray" market where ops decide on whether it is black or white based on how it is more profitable or convenient to them in every specific case. So far it seems that this one is the case. Correct me if I am wrong.

Yes, that is exactly what i dislike about the case.
Baron was an obvious scammer, but mtgox was definately hiding something / not playing open cards.

This is why at some point i thought that mtgox is a scammer too.

Well, this is not good tactics if you want to attract big players, serious people & people who are afraid of risk.

For now, +1 is all that mtgox gets from me. To get more, he needs more openess & clarity.

I trust Mt Gox as much as I'm trusting any other internet service.
(I prefer BitcoinMarket and am not using Mt Gox for personal/subjective reasons)

Good summary of bitcoin's current image, imho.

I don't enough about them to make an informed decision. Is there any way to see the results without voting?

I'm trying to keep an open mind about them, but some of the threads/stories I've been reading here are a bit unsettling.

The point of this is for the poll to be objective.
If you see the results before voting, then other votes will affect your opinion.
