If you go to hell for being bad...?
Why wouldn't Satan reward you for it? Why does he make you suffer? WTF? I'd be like, "hell yeah, motherf...let's party!"
Alternatively, if Satan punishes sinners, why isn't he considered good?

Why do you mistakenly think any of the three different hell's are anything to do with Satan?
“Hades” - “ᾅδης“ - “The unseen place”, or the literal ground or earth beneath our feet, where the vast majority go upon death bad and good. The body returns to the ground the memory of that person resides with God to be used when the resurrection back to life and judgement here on earth in the future takes place, a place without suffering. Used 10 times in the Greek scriptures (Mt 11:23;16:18; Lu 10:15; 16:23; Ac 2:27,31; Re 1:18; 6:8; 20:13,14).
In Hebrew rendered “Sheol” - “שְׁאוֹל"
Sheol used 66 times in the Hebrew scriptures (Ge 37:35; 42:38; 44:29,31; Nu 16:30,33; De 32:22; 1Sam 2:6; 2Sam 22:6; 1Kings 2:6,9; Job 7:9; 11:8; 14:13; 17:13,16; 21:13; 24:19; 26:6; Ps 6:5; 9:17; 16:10; 18:5; 30:3; 31:17; 49:14,14,15; 55:15; 86:13; 88:3; 89:48; 116:3; 139:8; 141:7; Pr 1:12; 5:5; 7:27; 9:18; 15:11,24; 23:14; 27:20; 30:16; Ecc 9:10; SofS 8:6; Is 5:14; 7:11; 14:9,11,15; 28:15,18; 38:10,18; 57:9; Ez 31:15,16,17; 32:21,27; Ho 13:14,14; Am 9:2; Jo 2:2; Ha 2:5).
“Gehenna” - “γέεννα” - Representative of utter destruction resulting from adverse judgement by God, hence with no resurrection or return, the end, those symbolically going there become non existent and do not suffer.
Used 12 times in the Greek scriptures (Mt 5:22,29,30;10:28;18:9;23:15,33; Mk 9:43,45,47; Lu 12:5; Ja 3:6)
“Tartarus” - “ταρταρόω” - A spirit prison like condition where the fallen angels who forsook their position in the days of Noah were placed for their disobedience, not applicable to physical beings such as humans.
Used 1 time in the Greek scriptures (2 Pe 2:4).

Everyone is a sinner. You're a sinner from the day you are born, and just because you get baptized, doesn't mean you're exempt from burning in hell for whatever bad things you do while here on Earth. If you truly believe in God and Satan, then I guess you'd understand that for example, I got baptized in 2010, but if I commit suicide, I'm not guaranteed a "get out of hell free card" for killing myself. It would still be a sin against the ten commandments, and hell is not somewhere your soul would party after you die. Lucifer once was an angel, but because he thought he was better than God, he got cast down to hell and God said that Lucifer can stay in hell since he thinks he's better than God. You can't expect hell to be a nice place in the afterlife, because it's not meant to be somewhere that your soul gets to go and have a good time. Your soul will have a horrible eternity if you were to go to hell when you die. You are not supposed to get pleasure out of hell. Only heaven is where your soul would get pleasure for eternity. Not hell. So, you have the wrong attitude about that, my dear. And do me a favor, don't comment on anymore of my questions, because your answers are ignorant. And, apparently, so are your questions.

False religion makes you suffer because of that lie it has been teaching for centuries. Religious leaders have shown that they are from the Devil when they burned people alive for supposedly being heretics. Even today, people use religion to inhumanely treat people and get away with it. See what the Bible tells us about even those who have practiced vile things. John 5:28 and 29 "Do not be amazed at this, because the hour is coming when all those who are in the memorial tombs will hear his (Jesus') voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment." Any who are not in God's memory will simply stay dead and dust. The Bible says that death is the penalty for sin, not hell. We are all sinners, but Jesus has become the ransom needed to overpower sin and death.

You don't go to hell for being bad. You go to hell for not believing in God. We are all bad. Some of us are remorseful and repent.

Satan doesn't punish sinners. When an eternal law is violated, there is punishment. Cause and effect.

Those that go to Hell are there alone, each, only remembering their sinful life here.

well, that's what makes Satan such a douche.
You serve him.........and you still end up in hell anyway, where he tortures you.
Worlds worst boss.

Hell is a place of intense pleasure for all those who give themselves to Satan. He rewards his kind.
