After being sent the FIRST link about typing in the backwards word, and my subsequent surprise, I received the "answer" to WHY this happens. Thought I'd share it, so that we don't ALL go jumping off the same Cliff!
Here's an explanation (from http://arthurgoldwag.wordpress.com/2010/01/17/itanimulli/):
Itanimulli, of course, is “Illuminati” spelled backwards. Type itanimulli.com <http://itanimulli.com> into your browser and the National Security Agency’s website pops up, proof positive, in some people’s minds, that the US government is a bought-and-paid-for subsidiary of the New World Order.
Other people took the next step and investigated. They swiftly discovered that a computer geek named John Fenley, who lives in Provo, Utah, purchased the domain name “Itanimulli” and is redirecting visitors to the NSA. He also owns many other domain names, including (as of May 19, 2004):
One intrepid researcher (definitely an NWO believer–his blog is named 12160.org <http://12160.org> , after the shortwave frequency that Alex Jones’s radio show is broadcast on) contacted Fenley by e mail and received a cordial reply.

Dear Mr. Fenley,
I have recently been alerted to the fact that you own the Domain Name: ITANIMULLI.COM <http://ITANIMULLI.COM> .
The website redirects to the NSA website . Many of us are wondering why that is ? Are you an employee of the NSA or DARPA ? Did you know your website spells Illuminati backwards? Are you familiar with the Illuminati and Its New World Order Plan ? If so are you pro or con ?
I really would appreciate it if you took some time to answer these questions and put our enquiring minds to rest. Thank you for your time.

I decided to forward the domain Itanimulli.com <http://Itanimulli.com> domain to the NSA as a joke… kind of like a rickroll + shock site. I registered the website years ago precisely because it does spell Illuminati backwards, but didn’t really do anything with it for a long time. When I had the idea to forward the domain to the NSA I couldn’t pass it up, and couldn’t stop laughing…
I don’t believe that the Illuminati actually exists, and only one black helicopter has ever buzzed my house (that’s a whole other story). I’m not sure what the New World Order Plan is, but if you have more information, I’ll gladly tell you what I think of it.
I am not an employee of the NSA or DARPA, though I have participated in several DARPA contests including the 2 Grand Challenges, the Urban Challenge and the recent Network Challenge.
Thanks for your interest,
