Double negatives are sometimes used for reinforcing a point of view, rather than negating the negative."Can somebody not please stop him?!?!"
And you give ME shit for sentence structure ED?
Not only is that incomprehesible, it's a double negative.
For that, I sentence you to listen to the latest Justin Beiber album for three hours straight.
ED, just don't open the thread?It's not a double negative. It's awdward, but it's not that.
Can someone not please stop him.It's not a double negative. It's awdward, but it's not that.
Also I had to look up "Strunk and White". Because I was really gonna get THAT reference!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.

You tell him, Anon.It's passive voice and awkward structure, but there has to be 2 negatives in it to be a double negative. There's not.
But if I ignored the thread now, I'd not be able to read all these posts by me!It should be more of a strong suggestion
