The Vote Is In!

Hooray! Someone voted in Meaningless Poll #1 (at last), bringing the vote total to a nice round 10. Now we can analyze the data.

According to our latest not very scientific polling, readers of "Mike's Musings" prefer to eschew obfuscation by a possibly significant majority. Seventy percent of our readers choose to eschew, while only a thirty percent free thinking minority choose to endorse.

No respondents chose to encapsulate obfuscation. Our analysts speculate that this may be due to the fact that to encapsulate obfuscation may not be physically possible, though scientists at the Defense Department reportedly may or may not be pursuing something that may or may not be related to this concept.

Credit for the idea behind this poll should go to my brother John, who on the occasion of my taking a job as a radio news reporter many years ago advised me to "Eschew Obfuscation" at all times. This phrase has become my own personal mantra in my developing career as an information pusher.

At all times, I try to eschew any and all forms of obfuscation. Unless I want to employ obfuscation for comic effect.
