Double negatives are particularly irksome, too - Pink Floyd comes to mind. "We don't need no education..."
If I didn't already know that I don't know anybody, I'd think that you must know me. I defiantly know what you're saying. While I could have typed "definitely" it wouldn't really have encapsulated what I meant to convey. I guess that leaves us at a crevasse.
