Assunto:  Can not
 
Mensagem:  In school I was told not to use "can not", that "cannot" was the correct form.  (You will find an article on Google that parrots this.  One generation learned the rule one way, another generation learned the opposite.)  That was stupid.  There are clearly some situations in which "can not" is the only acceptable form.  (And you will find that in articles too.)
