First off, this site is completely safe. Now, the entire site is a hoax, so don't believe a word on here. However, the hoax itself is not the actual subject of the site. The entire purpose of this site is to show that you need to be careful of what you are told, and that you should research anything that somebody tells you for yourself before you just believe it. I think we can all learn from here.

This is a parody website about DHMO (dihydrogen monoxide), which is water.
Review by Wiese3 years ago
I'm giving this a good review because this website doesn't have viruses or anything (it's safe). I know Dihydrogen Monoxide is a hoax, but then again, this website isn't a security risk.
Review by Ybother4 years ago
DH = Dihydrogen = 2H.
MO = Monoxide = O.
Combine them, you'll make H2O (water).
DHMO is bad. DHMO is water. Therefore, water is BAD.
A website that only mention all the downsides of water.

A hoax. It's water. REALLY PEOPLE.
Review by Janty5 years ago
Keep full blown website describing water in idiotic terms do show the scamming nature of its creators. As not enough a trash around, web including...
Review by Charafa5 years ago
Keep in mind, this site is a PARODY. This is a good site to teach critical thinking and how to actually evaluate claims that are often made by people who are ignorant of basic science. Be careful showing this site to republicans and religious people, they probably wouldn't get the parody. ;)

DHMO is water... these types of pages don't directly harm anyone... but this is not a reliable source
Review by Braynarod Risky7 years ago
It's actually really funny to see so many people convinced that water will destroy our environment or something, and extremely entertaining to see people not know that DHMO is actually water.

Satirical hoax which exposes how easily people will panic about things without knowing much about it.
Review by Comets Kalantarpour8 years ago
Banning for water, LOL.
Review by Cassandra9 years ago
As much as I like a good prank, I just can't possibly rate this website as a good website. Sure, it won't infect your computer, but the good WOT rating scares me even more than the content of the site.
Even after reading the below comment asking for a good rating, I have to decline.
Review by Immalee9 years ago
Good stuff. Be careful, though. The stuff they warn you of is FOUND IN ACID RAIN!
Review by Nostradameus9 years ago
I. LOVE. THIS. SITE. I'm totally sending it to someone I want to scare heh. Di-Hydrogen Monoxide, Di-2, Hydrogen, H2, Mono-1, Oxide, O. H2O. :P Easy to figure out if you've ever taken chemistry.
Review by Marthac9 years ago
Just funny :-)
Review by Bout9 years ago
Just a Hoax. Di hydrogen means 2 hydrogen atoms; oxide or monoxide means one oxygen atom. Put togeter the formula is H2O, aka water.
Funny to read, but I wonder how many people fell for this hoax.
Review by Muq Cereskaite10 years ago
These guys don't know what chemical nomenclature is! Water is also called dihydrogen->H2 and monoxide->O and this is H2O or water! They ban dihydrogen monoxide, in other words, they ban WATER! There's a fake DHMO scanner for Palm, I've tested it and turned out POSITIVE, POSITIVE, POSITIVE, POSITIVE, POSITIVE! Site is bogus! Even though it doesn't involve money, I'll still call it a scam.
Review by Pegasorous10 years ago
It's quite funny once you know that DHMO = Water. And it does sound like something the media will get in a panic about, humorous parody?
No attacks or anything bad.
Review by DmitriySl Stoggie10 years ago
This site is INFORMATIVE. It's better to be hoaxed by this site than some other more sinister. The learning comes with the realization that you have been duped.
I ask those, that have rated this site badly or "exposed" it in the Comments, to delete/change these comments and rate it Excellent in all 4 categories (lest WOT migth start warning newcomers not to enter it.)
The site is a white lie meant to teach us, not to fraud us. It does uncover the hoax in the "Press Kit" and even warns us of instances of Spam that is *really* trying to swindel money from us with a dhmo-hoax.
Review by Thykiera11 years ago
This IS A HOAX - however, the point of this site is NOT to scam people, and exists solely for the purpose of demonstration of epistemological naivete (basically, as a way to show how easily uninformed and even informed people can be tricked into thinking the opposite, just as how optical illusions work. If you KNOW what is happening here, this is actually a very entertaining and fun site to read. Even better if you figured out on your own that this was a site referring to water.

A scam on... well... just water.
