rockon The show has been seized, the website has been seized. It is deemed inappropriate propaganda to fuel demonstrations against off shore oil drilling and US Navy operations using dolphins and seals in anti-terrorist security. That is the official word I got.rockon

Anyone with half a brain and some basic knowledge of web design can see this is not a real seized domain by DHS. Do you guys stop to think at all about stuff before you immediately think it's a conspiracy?

the seizer is real, its the same page they put up when the shut down casinos and pirate sites,so if the mermaids arent real the sonic weapons might be, or the govt is just pissed at discovery for making them out to be evil mermaid killers to the entire world.

Re: Um, why is believeinmermaids.com seized by DHS???
it is obviously fake, and i amnot even all that smart yet about how sites are laid out, though i have more basic knowledge than the average user i suppose. The image is just a jpeg in the websites folder. Plus, when the DOJ seizes a website it says so right in the tab when you try to view the page. Like here:

people need to do more digging before posting. As for the mermaid mockumentary, they say right in the closing credits that it is fake, so there ya go.

All this means is that the website they stole this picture from was guilty of those things. The mermaid site just snagged the pic and set it as their homepage. It is deunked, it is fake, it means nothing.

It's all part of the "viral marketing" for the documentary itself. In order to lend credit to the documentary itself and the "cover up" by the government. However, look on the Animal Planet website itself and it is clearly stated that it is all a work of fiction.

This video has made a big splash. I see anywhere from 100 to 400 watching it on at least one website that has it, on an everyday basis.

I also see it's been taken off of YouTube; at least I can't find it on there anymore.

Maybe it was reported and DHS did shut them down at the producer's request?

I don't know enough about the sign they've put up on that Mermaid website, to know if it's fake or not.
