Yep (rot13.com).

Hidden knowledge can be an intriguing thing, provided you can lead the reader into the process of discovery and keep the reader motivated to crack the code.

I wish more people would be open to active discovery. I've been told so many times to simplify or reduce to take-away points, I'm starting to crack.

Especially maddenning are those who make such suggestions when it's clear they've paid only limited and peripheral attention in the first place. That's beyond passive discovery - it's lazy and insulting. Why should I make things simple if you're not paying attention anyway?

I think it depends on the context a bit. Especially if you're talking to relative strangers they have no prior expectation that you will make sense, and no reason to make an effort. A thick skin is a prerequisite for salespeople, and that is what we all are in this information era.
