Mt Gox has been struggling with phishing attempts and has finally made a public statement regarding this problem.
Recently there has been a large increase in the number of "phishing" attacks that have been made against the users of Mt.Gox.
Phishing involves deceiving users through fake emails or websites into providing their user name and password to the phisher, who then uses this information to log into the account and withdraw as many funds as they are able into their own bank account
Further down in the email, they link to the Mt.Gox Phishing Forum
, but at the time of writing there's only one single post saying "2011/08/30 - "Blocked Account" - further adding to the confusion.

I'm not sure what is causing this, but for the last months, the MtGox site has been showing up as:
This webpage is not available
The connection to mtgox.com was interrupted.
I assume there might be a problem with their htaccess configuration or the https certificate configuration. Anyways, it's not a serious problem since it usually works when reloading the site. This is the error message my browser reports:
Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): The connection was reset.

During the last few days, MtGox have been restoring their system and had a long and painful process where users had to claim back their accounts. Later on, after even more delays, the trading was eventually started again. It was 5 days in which many people had no idea if they had lost their money or not, and nobody knew if the value of their currency would disappear as soon as the market would open again.
During this time, it was possible to post comments on MtGox' announcement page, and the nervous comments are now saved from the Google cache by MtGox Sucks. Anyone can read all comments that it was possible to recover below.
