The assumption in the rules is that the ham is not a derp-a-derp, a loophole looker, or a hambone Perry Mason. If it comes to a violation, the FCC will not accept arguments related to the three dingbats above. I call them Spams. What we're seeing is that all hams are not regular folks looking to just follow the rules and move forward. The Spams (imitation hams) seek to obfuscate issues to their own benefit even in discussions.
