I'm talking about 'Fraud Risk' here.
If you do not want to hold BitCoin, have a payment processor like BitPay change the Bitcoin into Dollars right after the purchase.
That way you will never hold Bitcoin and will never be subject to its price fluctuations.
About the links you posted;
If you trust your money to third parties (Exchanges, etc), you expose yourself to "bad apples" and can risk to loose it. This is true of any currency, not just Bitcoin.
Additionally, if you loose your wallet full of USD, you loose your money
That can happen with any currency.
