I am a second level disciple of Variety. In addition to maintaining membership in prosumer collaboration sites (youtube, newgrounds), I sometimes try random words in the address bar. One day I tried Hell.com
The first time, I wandered my way through in awe, solving its puzzles with ease. I reccomended the site to another who didn't try so hard to uncover its secrets. So I reimmersed myself, writing down its responses and even tore the skin off the code of its homepage.
Later, I discovered Everything and its twenty write-up requirement for level two. This wasn't even a nodeshell with broken compass softlinks. To better understand it, I checked wikipedia and found the site has a more complex history than I imagined and mundaner owners than I thought. Check out its article first since I won't repeat its information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hell.com
Below are lists of responses the site gives. For some, you must refresh the page; others demand your input. These are either typed verbatum or copied directly from the page's html coding, even keeping some of the original line breaks. I put this on E2 because the site's owners occasionally restrict the public's portion of the site to two pages and we lose access to a source of mystique.
