Double negatives are sometimes used for reinforcing a point of view, rather than negating the negative.

So don't be giving me no Beiber, dude. wink.gif

Can someone not please stop him.

Can someone please not stop him?

He will not be stopped.


I think it's abiguous. I know it could also parse down to "Can not someone please stop him?" but it's also logical to read it the other way, thus half of the viable interpretations of the sentence are that it's a double negative.

Can I get a strunk and white ruling please? Anny? CAN SOMEONE NOT GIVE ME A WHUT-WHUT? wink.gif

Alternatively, Squid, you could just suck my fat one.

It's passive voice and awkward structure, but there has to be 2 negatives in it to be a double negative. There's not.

It should be more of a strong suggestion happy.gif

I never understand people that open a thread they know the contents of and post that they don't like the content. It baffles my mind.

85 posts on a thread and you couldn't figure out the pattern and just ignore it?

You tell him, Anon.

I've always liked Anons.

That Squidboy is a bounder, a cheat, a cad, and a carpetbagger!

"Can't someone please not stop him?"

That's a double negative.

I'm quite sure that there is absolutely nothing on you that qualifies as "Fat," ED. In any case, there is no part of you that I will suck. I'm sure it all tastes like booze and cigarettes, and I don't suck on dudes anyway.


That said - OK, I'm willing to admit I may be wrong about the double negative thing. Thanks for not being a dick about it Anon, you stood your ground without being insulting, so I respect that.

Anon is right. ED's original post "Can somebody not please stop him?!?!" is more of a way to phrase things vs a double negative. It's like the British way of saying "Can't someone stop him?"

So cool, when I link you a song, do you click on it and listen to it?

I mean, I've heard all of yours of course. So I only click on the ones other people post that I've not heard before. You post the sappiest schlock that our childhoods produced.

I want to hear that your horizons are open enough that when we post one for you that you watch it.

SO... if you haven't - start at the top of this thread and LISTEN to every song that people posted for you. SHARE this experience with people, and be grateful for what they picked for you.

This will save you, I promise.

Until you post your reactions to all of these songs people posted for you, you're dead to me.
