I think it's an over-reaction to how obviscated guides can be...
probably nobody on *this* list has ever written such a guide, but it
is true that one of the factors behind my decision to take up


-------------------- END OF ORIGINAL MESSAGE --------------------
Probably "obfuscated." Maybe a better word would be "ambiguous?" "Confusing?" Or
some other word -- spelled correctly -- that
has the same meaning, but without the potential confusion. One meaning of
obfuscate is "to make obscure." If the guides
were really "made obscured," one would think it was done on purpose.

But I'm just nit-picking, don't mind me!
