This is why I just say stay away from MtGox. Your bitcoins are safer in a dogs house as atleast the dog would bark when soemthing dosent look right.
amazingrando I am sorry to hear about your loss. It seems that we all lose soemthing in Bitcoin at some point. I would advise from my own research and experiance that you only use an exchange to move btc to other currencies and not hold your coins there. Seeing how you already started that, then good for you. Also I would suggest using tradehill. MtGox has never hit the promised withdraw or transfer times on more than twice, and when I do have problems with TradeHill, they are only quick glitches and the staff is more than helpful.
Thanks for the advice Shakaru. TradeHill has been quite good for me. The only reason I've been using Mt.Gox is that Dwolla works better for me than Paxum. But, maybe that's a small price to pay for a better exchange.
You can use that service Bitinstant to buy into Tradehill with dwolla
Or at least you could last time I checked
