Unlike negatives, which can become rhetorically positive when doubled, or even negative again if tripled, redundancy just gets increasingly redundant when multiplied:

Negatives function grammatically in the same way as multiplying by negative numbers in math, altering polarity each time. Redundancy is additive. Or, rather, it’s like multiplying by 1 — it adds a new piece of apparatus to the equation without changing a thing.
