I've been thinking a lot about this (perhaps I'm being irrational).
1 - I lost a lot of money (sold half, kept half of my DAO).
2 - Miners deserve to have the best possible outcome as they are the ones securing the chain and the only ones able to do anything about this.
3 - Only three entities can immediately benefit from the three different choices.
.) The hacker - gets all his Eth, dumps on the market, things go to shit.
.) The original buyer gets back their Eth, dump on the market, things go to shit.
.) The hardfork locks the funds to take 15% of Eth off the market. As a general rule bad contract writing should not be bailed out. I understand "bailing out" when the entire ecosystem needs to be saved. I don't understand rewarding both those like me who chose a risky investment or those who wrote the risky investment to begin with. It makes more sense to reward miners and Eth holders.
4 - Does anyone know if there will be two plans for the hardfork? One to lock the funds & one to return the funds? I feel like it's an option worth having. At this point since the miners are doing the work of retrieving rogue funds I feel like they should be distributed to miners since the DAO writers lost them. Doubt that will happen.
P.S. Before you hate - I was all about returning to the DAO hodlers of which I'm one until recently after spending enough time deliberating
