Confess yourself, come clean.

They failed to code a contingency for the smartass who types "I love knitting."

Grouphug is better, and you don't have to sit through the animations.

I just added "I ripped off grouphug.us and added a horrible Flash interface" on behalf of the site owner.

All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand.

I'm going to confess hanging out with all you cynics.

I kinda liked the site.

I found this disturbingly relaxing. I wonder if this is what it's like to have OCD?

What the hell does Grouphugs.us have to do with this?

I like how there's a pitch to visit the gift shop at the end. I can never get enough of people clandestinely trying to sell me things under the guise of entertainment.

Oh wow. I remember this "method" cosmetics group. They seemed to resemble your average hipster html-shop, except instead of doing web design they make soap. Where have I seen them before? Hmmm. Oh well.

Confession: "I posted a marketing tool to MetaFilter"

Good fun!

My first comment ever on The Blue: "I thought this had something to do with Cooking with Cum!"

Pepsi Blue?

Painful. Meshing the image of a domestic cleansing herself with confessional statements about adultery kinda takes away from the fun.

Can't compete with this, frankly.

On preview, what dirtynumbangelboy said.

Me: "I invaded Iraq."
ComeClean.com: "An invasion? Sounds like someone needs a time out."

Then it told me it was filthy to lie. Unlike a priest, this thing really berates you. Maybe it was designed by Est practitioners.

Hey, wow, thanks for the grouphug link. Now I'm hooked. Though after reading this I feel the need for some nice hot cocoa.

"I drive with my eyes closed."

Riiiiight.

"I ran naked through the streets."

Have you met the person who drives with their eyes closed?

Tyler Durden wants you to buy soap.

I confess that I wasn't aware that one could insert graphics in MeFi.

Damn, when I posted this I wasn't aware of the sound (at work with no speakers and obviously not paying attention to the preloader).

I owe Pretty_Generic a case of beer, at least a case if not more, for that brilliant post.

Here you are! E-mail me for my address. Merry Christmas!

PS: I am unbelievably poor.

I will probably regret this link, PlanoTX. Don't post too many pictures and the comment box allows html.

I liked the group hug thing, and confessions like this need pictures attached. That's something I'd have to see.

This is of course what Baptism is. The cleansing of ones sins by washing it away with water. One more notch in my "religious people are actually clinically crazy" theory.

I confess the music in the background of that website has given me a headache. The website told me I suck. What an advertising campaign. What were they selling again? Cars or something?

Looky here, the config file listing all built-in responses! Lots of personal advice triggered by "dirty" words, as well as opinions on certain celebrities (examples: Jessica Simpson, David Hasselhoff).

I'm not terribly pro-Productfilter, but I do like Method. They make a whole line of biodegradable, non animal tested cleaning products that are relatively cheap and widely available (at Target).
