in thread Separated JAPH/Obfuscation sections

I agree that there are already a lot of sections here, and I often don't know where to post my questions... (Yes, I sometimes post elsewhere than in Obfuscated Code.)

Clearly the Obfuscation section is not the place where most posts go. Anyway, I really feel that JAPH and Obfuscation are two different matters. I like to be surprised by the code I read in this section, and all too often alas, I know what a particular piece of code will print (and how) without reading it all (no I didn't read this one completely, but I am shocked by the good reputation it gets)...

But you are probably right when you say I should ignore posts that I find "not good enough". It's just that these JAPH are not what I (and I hope others) think obfuscation is... At first I tried -- to indicate my reprobation, then I tried critique (or worse). Now, I feel that JAPH have their own use, which is good, but is not the same as obfuscation (which would be something closer to artistic).
