I'm sorry, but I didn't read it that way at all. I hate putting words in someone else's mouth, but I'm going to do it anyway(smile)
What Jen seems to me to be saying is that exceptions can make enforcement a lot trickier. The paragraph above it was using a petition, plus a lot of other things as an example of how complicated it can get.
And I think that Jen, who is a very sensitive person, added the bit about not poking fun because she was genuinely worried about it. I've never known her to be mean, and it's hard for me to think she is being mean in this case.
It's been a long day and a long struggle. I think we all need some rest.
