OK, don't use MtGox' services.
How is a gold storage with daily withdrawal limits reflecting bad on gold in general?
1. Mtgox has 80% of the market. So if they are crooked, it means eighty percent of the bitcoin market is controlled by crooks. Good luck with that.
2. It would be very sad if an any real exchange started placing withdrawal limits on their customers for any commodity. In fact, it would mean the death of that exchange. Only with bitcoin, a nonexistent piece of nothing used only by the naive, can such a thing happen.
3. If a gold storage place slaps a withdrawal limit on you, it would mean only one thing.
They are not storing your gold, but stealing it.
Otherwise why don't they just give you your gold and be done with it?
My whole point is - if you are not happy with your dealer, drop him. Buy bitcoin from other people. Do not smear the medium with dirt of the specific dealer.
