So I hop onto Coinvisitor.com and a png image appears on the front page that suggests the site has been seized by federal authorities. But It must be a joke because there is no way that Homeland Security would say "Censorship is Security" proceeded with sayings from Orwell's 1984. Im hoping the site is just under maintenance and the owners thought this was funny to put up temporarily in the meantime. See below for link to screencap

I think it's been hacked.  Why would the owner redirect to a different domain?

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).

That domain is a google DNS. Verifiable through network-tools.com or a quick nmap

Could be a PR stunt. The site was growing rapidly and maybe this was a big push along with the current growth.

OR...

It very well couldve been hacked/defaced and the redirect to the site with this image is just the final result/proof.

We wont know until the owner makes an announcement. Im just glad I cashed out recently. I think I only had 0.0002800 btc as of last night when it was still working fine.

Yeah it was working today and then after a little while the site transferred me to the trololol site

I hope this isnt the owner doing this because this is starting to become a pain in the ass. It was funny yesterday but I am going to stop visiting the site if this is going to continue
