It’s time that MTGOX got the bitcoin communities wrath instead of [the] Bitcoin Community getting Goxed

“Goxed”– is a term that users use suffer from Mt. Gox’s technical glitches. The hackers also post a 716MB file to Karpeles’ personal website that they said comprised stolen data from Mt. Gox’s servers, which includes an Excel spreadsheet of over a million trades, company balances, admin files and Karpeles’ home address and CV. Forbes reports that the file includes malware and that the personal details of all Mt Gox customers appears to have been put up for sale.
