So, I dare not say HELL, NO here to all of you---because you're my friends,  not THUGS! But I'd like to say: Heavens no, I'm not confused at all!

Hell, NO!  Of course you can say "Hell, no" to us.  It's used frequently among friends.

So you are confused after all!

Yeah, that's right. Thanks, JL, for clarifying! (I think it's more of a "guy thing," really, but that might be a little sexist.) I was giving perhaps a too-strict explanation.
中文我不会读也不会写。Really, I don't.

Yes, I have to say I'M REALLY CONFUSED! But for安全起见,我还是不说HELL, NO为好,以免有人会见怪的。

Many thanks for all the discussion!

Adeley:  American common expression sometimes doe not really mean much other than an expression.

Just wanted to point out to you, the one time when:
heavens no
means the same as
Hell no.

Hell no is used among good friends all the time.

好朋友之间的谈话较之一般性的谈话确实随便多了!
