What does this sentence mean?

That it's not loved, only appreciated?

Or oh my goodness I so appreciate this, I might just love it too!

I'm not sure how I should take this. As a slight middle finger, sarcastic. Is this said/written with a good vibe, good intentions or the opposite?

"It's appreciated" => appreciated for sure

"If not loved" => It may (or may not) be loved.

Usually my understanding of this construction is your second option, "Oh my goodness I so appreciate this, I might just love it too!"

I think it could also mean,"Loving is probably an overstatement, but I definitely do appreciate it."

Either way, the comment itself is one of good intentions, and doesn't imply sarcasm or meanness.
