Eschew Obfuscation!!!

Hah
Susan was right. You need to put titles in your posts that make it obvious what you were trying to ask.

If you are at a loss as to how to get a title that attracts attention, look at this newspaper. It always gets my attention. Plus it is all true.
http://www.weeklyworldnews.com/

All seriousness aside, there are tons of posts where not only does the title not make sense, the question doesn't make sense either.

I would like to think that there are newdies out there who need some help that maybe some experienced people could give, but the questions and titles are so vague that giving an answer is difficult.

For newer users, please make the title of the post and your question clear. That is likely to get greater response and quicker solutions to your problem.

Just my $1/50.

    In order to eschew obfuscation we of course must apply synergistic solutions to the new paradyme potential in the universe of clients and associates.

    In a post-Enron world in which corporate accountability and ethical behaviour have become increasingly emphasised, rhetorical analysis of an often biased stream of discourse is disassociate with the normal patterns of unethical, and, I believe, ethical but parental systems. I long to explore the metaphors and persuasive strategies used by corporate leaders but to avoid an ideology of neo-corporatism, extreme individualism, hyper-competition, and global capitalism.

    That being stated, we should remember that which raises alarm bells regarding the ethos of corporate leadership and urge the business press, academia, and the accounting and auditing community to take a more critical approach.

    One might argue that the title of this post is
    in violation of the very precept you are trying
    to promote.

    I've always considered a finely tuned sense of irony to be an asset.

    To be fair (& to split more than a few hairs), I consider the use of words such as "eschew" & "obfuscation" to be infinitely preferable to (and at odds with) the use of such words as "synergistic", "solutions" and "paradyme" (sic) which are part of the vile & redundant corporate biz-speak: the lowest form of communication on the planet.

    <steps down from soap-box>

    On-topic: yup - I too wish that people would use meaningful thread titles.

    More intellectual elitism... Live and let live people - folks learn soon enough that the better the description, the better the response rates.

    The correct corporate speak reply is "Clearly" "Word" is so....20th century It lacks traction and does not have robust enough legs to be deployed 24X7. (not to mention being able to execute global scope and scale)

    On the subject of obfuscation, I read about an alternate MIDI controller once, a long long time ago, in some music tech mag, called the O.b.f.u.s.c.a.t.o.r. - it was a kind of proto D-Beam I guess, the idea being that there would be three egg-like objects on your desk and they would track the movements (in 3D) of objects on the desk - presumably with manual assistance - and turn them into MIDI notes and controller streams. So you could slam your phone down and have that generate some sort of sound, and shuffle papers for another... you get the idea. It may have been an April Fools issue, or someone's project that never saw the light of day, I have no idea

    The magazine being long gone, and Google generating a null response, I have tried to excavate from my dusty memory banks exactly what the acronym stood for, and I think I have it, but I'm not sure about the end bit. Anyone else plagued by this obscure obsession? In any case, what I can recall is this:

    Orthagonal Bipolar Field-Undulation-Sensitive Cathode Array Triangulation Object Recognition ....

    I thought you might like to know...

    Although this should be true, based on my observations, the more obscure titles get the higher hit rate.

    Exactly. That was entirely the point.

    Just sounded more interesting than newbies. D and B are not even close on the keyboard.
