I'm surprised about the confusion, or more the underlying lack of transparency, surrounding this very basic functionality. It's somewhat strange that the 'experts' haven't been communicative about this matter. There are two ways: Just transfer your DAO Tokens to an exchange and sell them. Choose the long and winding route of splitting into your own DAO and ...

The DAO gets a lot of comparisons to shareholders, but mostly in this sense: Your shares give you the right to vote and the right to collect "dividends" (reward tokens) and so it's in your best interest to vote, but you don't have to vote to collect your dividends.

This would result in a private DAO that would allow you to send your Ether back to yourself. As mentioned earlier, it sounds like the primary approach to sell tokens will be through exchanges. But it seems to me that if you can ...

Sell Tokens: See https://daohub.org/creation.html : "Both Gatecoin and Bittrex are planning to support the trading of DAO Token as early as the end of the DAO Token Creation. [...] Tokens will be tradable peer-to-peer and on exchanges starting at the end of The DAO Creation Phase." -> You will have to use online platforms (Bittrex or Gatecoin) or P2P ...
