I've done it, and I hate it.

I hate hard-to-understand code. Moreso when I know I wrote it, and then find out a while later can't follow it.

When I'm writing new code and realize I'm going down that path, I try my best to get it to work first, then refactor the living crap out of it with simplicity in mind. That said, these two goals are sometimes at odds with each other...
