I guess it causes grief to people mainly when you normally serve without the pause and occasionally do the pause becasue they are using the backward movement as their cue to move - which is itself illegal.
You could always carry a copy of the rules with you - which is good advice for anyone, really - to show the doubters who challenge you.
You should start calling net touches properly yourself. Local variations are not valid and the rule talks about the net in its entirety - not just the tape.
Some will argue that it should not matter, but the fact is that it does and they are being penalised for lack of control, effectively.
