I’ve noticed lately that people tend to put “kindly” into formal requests in rather an odd way, as, for example:
We kindly ask that you register in advance.
Surely they mean, “We ask that you kindly register in advance.” There’s nothing kind about their asking, and it’s a bit rude of them to describe themselves as kind. That is, it would be if they were doing it consciously, but they’re surely not. This is just one of those expressions people use automatically, without any thought of what they actually mean.
