I'd like to agree.
You're marketting that obfu diddly as if it was some kind of securing filter. Try encrypting the code instead, even though that's only temporary aswell. Ever read about why security through obscurity is broken?

Obfu's are like perl golf. They are fun, and strictly such. Take a look at Best Nodes, and see Erudil's various contributions, for example. That's art, and that's witty. Other obfu's have ingenious ways of doing things so sideways you ghasp. That's what real obfu's are about. Obfuscating is showing off, not hiding what you did. Keep that in mind.

Do you buy a clip art package for $879-1879 and show your friends what pretty drawings you made? No. Because you didn't make them.
