If you "could care less" then you have a level of caring which is possible
to decrease [by definition].

Therefore by your own statement, YOU REALLY DO CARE, but you may be in

On the other hand, perhaps "You couldn't care less".

Seriously: I tend to agree with most of what you posted. This mis-use of a
phrase just happens to be the #1 thing that bugs me when it comes to
improper logic in a statement.
