Obfuscation and golfing are fun diversions, but don't write your production code that way. Use comments and spend some time on the layout of your code to make it presentable. Be proud of your work.

As a golfer, I have to point out that golfed code is production code. It's just a different kind of "production" than the one you get paid for. Same with obfuscation, even more so than golf. Layout is extremely important, especially in multi-line golfs. And, I am proud of every golf I write.

Now, I understand what you're trying to get at. Readability is the key is code that is meant to be edited. So, you should "golf" for editability. :-)
