comment Meaning and usage of “bite me”
Good answer, but for clarity I want to mention that in my experience, "bite me" is much less intense of a phrase than "go to hell". You kinda mention this, but I want to emphasize that often this phrase is often said as a super soft version of "stuff it".

@FumbleFingers I prefer and... I don't really understand the desire to edit this. Based on the meta question it doesn't seem like the community formed a consensus that these changes should be made. :/

I will consider adding it as an answer. I have to think of a better riff due to your good point above.
