If that is the case then it's just one question:

My biggest lost was on Mazacoin. With AUR I didnt technically lose as I mined it, but I could have made a couple of BTCs and didn't sell. Painful but well, gotta learn from the mistakes.

I've never lost bitcoin , maybe 0.05 BTC in an old ipo of altcoin. I've also never participated in a ponzi scheme , it is not right and very high of risk.

Gox took 85 from me.  I made it through their first big fiasco and got all my fiat and Bitcoins back so I assumed the second time would work out similarly.  Doesn't appear to be the case.  I also lost a few hundred to a buyer in Hong Kong via ebay/paypal/chargeback nonsense.  Nearly every ebay buyer turned out to be a scammer.

That was back in 2010 when I lost 100 BTC that I CPU-mined on a spare server. I forgot all about it and set up a web site on the server, so I could not really remove it for recovery. Plus I only remembered about it when I got back into Bitcoin in 2011 and started taking things more seriously. The data was probably long overwritten by then.

Yet another poorly designed survey.

What should goxxed people answer? I don't know whether gox was hacked or not.

This.

Lots of people (if not most) got screwed by dishonest exchanges, who claimed to be 'hacked' which was very likely massive bullshit.
Should they tick "Online wallet" and "My wallet got hacket", even know both are not correct?

I put my wallet got hacked, but that isn't entirely accurate.  What happened was I got scammed out of a few coins on localbitcoins.  I agree, this survey needs more choices.  Plus, I keep my coins in multiple ways.

Save the last bitcoin for me!

I just hope we won't see anytime soon the major news reporting:

"Recent survey shows that 99% of bitcoin users have had their wallets hacked" or anything like that  Smiley
