I've been bugged by your use of "ilk", so being the acute student that I am i decided to research the use and consult my English teacher. The word "ilk" is supposed to be used when you describe somthing WITH a direct adjective. Such as, "I have seen many oddly green bikes:I do not like their ilk" however " ilk is a special case which can only reference to somthing within the same sentence. Therefore the use of "I am familiar with your ilk" is improper and not true English. Just a thought I had while reading this.
