I noticed a link in the Link section of openmpt.org called http://helllabs.org/tracker-history/

Who made this website and why ever did they call it that? Wouldn't musiclabs.org have been better and not so abhorrent and alienating to some folks, such as myself. If they are going to call it helllabs.org they may as well call it stayawaylabs.org

Am I the only one who feels this way? Does this name give anyone else the willies? I like music, but not hell.

In my own experience, Hell was with me as long as I carried it.  Once I left it behind me, I lost my fear of it.

I'm not afraid of hell, I just don't think that a web address called helllabs.org is very appropriate, definitely it is not an inviting name.

You are putting to much weight on the name.

meh, hell is - as far as any evidence seems to point - very likely entirely fictional, an idea used as a whip to enslave the gullible to the will of the elites (not killing the greedy money hoarding bastards). I left religion a long time ago, and am long beyond that limp dick threat the religious love to throw around.
So no, I dont get the 'willies' any more than I would if someone named their webpage azkaban or mordor or any of the other fictional bad places. Idgaf other than that the name is slightly cool and a bit cliche, like the word equivalent of pictures of skulls or ghosts that look like people in sheets. Like ghost stories from my childhood I just shrug and get on with things.
Words are just words in the end of the day. I have plenty of actual real life threats to worry about if I was the worrying kind such as the real risks of crossing the street or random illness killing me tomorrow, I couldnt be less threatened by something that doesnt even have any verifiable / repeatedly testable evidence.
