It looks like JAPH scripts are often misinterpreted for obfuscation stuff, when often they are not.
Actually, I have downvoted several JAPH nodes for not being "obfuscated enough" for me... Since I seldomly gave advice on how to make those better (in my view), this led to bad feelings/votes.
After a discussion in CB with kel and others, we found that maybe the problem is elsewhere: JAPH and obfuscation are actually different. Check this summary:
It looks like there is a need for a second section, dedicated to JAPH writers. When they get used to those twisted ways of using our beloved Perl, they can switch to Obfuscation...
