Bitcoin prices on Mt. Gox have swung between $91 and $350 over the past three days... Weigh in on whether or not you think the exchange is doomed. What do you think they need to do survive?

I'd say it's 50/50 right now but i'm leaning more towards bankruptcy. The fact that they still allow trading while they hold withdrawals either means they are planning on coming back or are scamming everyone big time.

you forgot to add:
after a few announcments of new announments they finally managed to solve it themselves and continue.

but we have to understand that we are only allowed to withdraw 1btc/day because of the risk they take beeing the biggest exchange and permanently attacked.

Good point. I just added that... I didn't reset the votes since there are so few right now.

MtGox always finds a way to continue fucking everyone into oblivion, indefinitely.

Saying that you don't trust someone because of their behavior is completely valid.

I don't know why, but for some reason I think they will figure things out and get back up and running.  One way or another, I'd like to see this drama come to an end.

 While collecting the trading fees and stringing customers along. I'll be optimistic 50/50...

I never thought my life could be. Anything but catastrophe. But suddenly I begin to see. A "BIT" of good luck for me. Cause I've got a golden ticket!

No.  

I simply don't see how they can ever regain customer confidence again.  All the problems gox has had over the last 1.5 years with technical glitches, downtimes, insane verification wait times, customer service that doesn't respond,  bank seizures causing banks not wanting to work with them, lawsuits that are still pending, government investigations that are still pending,  customers unable to get their fiat out, and now customers unable to get their bitcoins out.......   what could they possibly do to make people want to ever stay with them or come back with them.  Especially when there are now other options out there and more options coming.

If anyone knows an answer to that, please let me know.  Cause I don't see one.   IMO I think gox will go under sometime in 2014 or early 2015.

Gox is already brain dead. There is no hope that it will survive.

People used Gox because it was mentioned in the media a lot. I think everyone learned there is better exchanges now, and hopefully the media follows suit and forgets about Gox.

No. Even if they do survive this speedbump I would say the damage is already too much.

I should also mention I do not expect them to survive in the short term.

Karples is not without intellect. I believe he will bounce back as he has the last 3? (I lost count) times he erred.

i was thinking about deposit fiat to mtgox.

Good plan!  You could also:
-Throw it out the window
-Use it to light a fire in your fireplace
-Donate it to charity

In my opinion, all 3 options would provide a better return on your investment.

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful.
