By all means

Posted by Pratik on June 25, 2007

I still have not been able to figure out the real meaning of the phrase "by all means". What I want to know is that would it be wrong to use it in a context like "You are insane by all means." Would not this sentence imply that the person is certainly insane without a doubt, that the person is insane in every way?
