That's not...

what MtGox is claiming. They are claiming that website lagginess caused a panic. Why would a slow website indicate price peaking especially when a supposed tidal wave of new bitcoiners is incoming?

A mass influx of new bitcoiners logically should be interpreted as a wave of new and increased demand (higher prices) and create an impulse to maintain accumulated bitcoins.

I'm looking for reasons (even theoretical ones) for this to occur:

"Oh no!!! MtGox is being slow! Sell! Sell! Sell! :( "
