Oh, please. What makes you think it's not a joke? It looks like one to me.
"Spiritual wants and instincts are as various in the human family as are physical appetites, complexions, and features, and a man is only at his best, morally, when he is equipped with the religious garment whose color and shape and size most nicely accommodate themselves to the spiritual complexion, angularities, and stature of the individual who wears it."

"The despotism of heaven is the one absolutely perfect government. An earthly despotism would be the absolutely perfect earthly government, if the conditions were the same; namely, the despot the perfectest individual of the human race, and his lease of life perpetual. But as a perishable perfect man must die, and leave his despotism in the hands of an imperfect successor, an earthly despotism is not merely a bad form of government, it is the worst form that is possible."

-Mark Twain

Seems like most people don't think it is, including the person who posted it.

The chumras will stop universally when moshiach comes. Individuals can stop them by using their brains to know when zealots go too far.

this assumes that said individuals have brains. i daresay many of these individuals do not

Where do you see that most people don't think it's a joke? It seems to me that most of the commenters assumed it was a joke, despite the poster's assertion - backed up by nothing, I might add, and even questioned by one commenter - that it wasn't.
