Even if that was meant light-heartedly, that's exactly the kind of 
nitpicking an offender would try to apply in his/her favor. And that's 
the reason why I have such a strong bias against trying to cover all 
bases - the more text you have, the more interpretatory loopholes there are.

I believe one of the reasons that people tend to draw up overspecific 
CoCs is that they want to make sure that even an evicted offender can't 
argue against the eviction.
It's not going to help in this way though. (Almost?) all offenders 
believe they're totally in their right acting like they do.
