[EN] Possible redundancy rule

Hello!

I had written:
"For those of you who have known me for decades know that (...)"

Can't it suggest to replace with:
"For those who"

?

Thanks!

not necessarily redundant.
It can (and should be) used to differentiate between people merely matching the description and those of them amongst the audience.

EG: "For those of you who are of reduced mobility, Mr. Perkins has been kind to provide transportation to the park proper."
(If "of you" was removed it could imply that Mr. Perkins would be providing transportation for all visitors of reduced mobility, which may be beyond his capabilities.)
