Seems like somebody is selling a great deal of coins right now on your market MtGox, giving the rapid price decrease. A few robberies have occurred lately on Linode involving Slush's pool, The Faucet, Bitcoinica and others, so those great amounts of coins could be theirs.

So i'm asking you guys, please, for the community's best interest, provide some public info or investigate on the issue and give those people a chance to recover their money somehow. I know this could damage the profits you could make right now but you will get our appreciation in long term and keep having the great reputation you have.

As far as we can tell the Bitcoin sold on Mt.Gox are not stolen ones and there are few chance that these coins will be ever sold via our network/Mt.Gox

Maybe not immediatley. But several months from now when the coins are sufficiently mixed into the network I don't see how you can avoid having any tainted coins going through Mt. Gox. The coins from that allinvain-theft are currently mixed into 100,000 addresses.

And as (if I remember correctly) we agreed in another thread, MtGox should never be held to blocking Bitcoins from being bought on MtGox (unless they want to buy them themselves and eat the losses) or sold on MtGox (unless they have proof the seller is the theif) just because the coins were stolen. Money is money. Anyone who believes money has "intention" or "agenda" in itself is not involved in Bitcoin, they're involved in the process to make the FED, FinCEN and the US dollar stronger.
