From what I read most of the forum thinks that mtgox is lying their customers straight in the face. I wonder if this is true.
I also wonder how many of you guys having strong opinions about them actually are still within their costumer base...

The actual statement reads:

Statement Regarding BTC Withdrawal Delays

Quote
Tokyo - JAPAN - February 07, 2014

Dear MtGox Customers,

In our efforts to resolve the issue being encountered by various bitcoin withdrawals, it was determined that the increase in the flow of withdrawal requests has hindered our efforts on a technical level. To understand the issue thoroughly, the system needs to be in a static state.

In order for our team to resolve the withdrawal issue it is necessary for a temporarily pause on all withdrawal requests to obtain a clear technical view of the current processes.

We apologize for the sudden short notice. All bitcoin withdrawal requests will be on pause, and the withdrawals in the system will be returned to your MtGox wallet and can be reinitiated once the issue is resolved. The trading platform will perform as usual for the needs of our customers. 



Our team will resolve this problem as soon as possible and will provide an update on Monday, February 10, 2014 (JST).



We deeply apologize for the inconvenience caused, and thank you for your kind support and considerations. 


Sincerely,

The MtGox Team

To me it's just obvious that they will cease to exist on short notice.
Their current 'we're having technical issues' statement is just buying them some more time..

I do, they´re trustworthy and rock solid as fuck. Mark my words. Mt. Gox FTW.

"Recently published media accounts are inferring a link between MtGox and the former online Silk Road marketplace and other illegal services and activities. MtGox denies that it has ever knowingly assisted, agreed to assist, or willingly cooperated with anyone to use Bitcoin to engage in illegal or illicit transactions."

Great poll I will be watching this one.  I voted yes and have BTC at MTGOX but it is awfully tempting to selling to those offering reverse arbitrage for GoxBTC ..  If somebody gave me 90% I would probably take it.

OK so why would Gox add new security features to their site - obviously costing them a lot of time and money in November 2013 - just so that they can 'pretend' to have technical problems to steal their customers coins 3 months later!!

ANSWER: they wouldn't. They simply have a small glitch in their very complex web application that runs their site. So they are fixing it. end of story.
