There are several exchanges for Bitcoin with a few highly respected ones like Mt.Gox, Bitstamp, bter, bit-e etc. I understand the reason why they require verification of users by supplying their bank information along with government ID and address proof. However, most of these exchanges decide to keep themselves anonymous to an extent. They don't mention the founding/management team on their website. I'm sure it's possible to find out for some by googling. I don't feel comfortable that they want all the information from me without disclosing anything about themselves.
This also raises the question about what level of security practices and audit do they have in place. I have read several stories about hacking of exchanges, stolen databases/wallets, nightmare to withdraw money etc.
Is there a source of information that compares these exchanges in terms of real world incidents, fee structure, and the backing team behind them? Basically looking for a reliability and customer service rating.
