I think this has more to do with popularization of the religion than
actual practice. I've never had my Zen friends try to talk to me in
riddles about it.
Of course there are the "I'm more Zen [or insert other Buddhist branch
here] than you are" contests you see on USENET. Imagine someone standing
outside a science building talking to all who came along in star trek
'science' language trying to impress them :)
