Misuse of idioms: Clear as mud

Why do people explain something then ask if it is "clear as mud"? The context says they're asking if the person understands what was explained but the words ask if they don't understand it still. If you say 'yes' they think you understand and if you say 'no' they think you don't understand. Stupid misuse of idioms. Stupid stupid stupid.
