Is it gramatically correct to say "I appreciate you".


People say this to me and it just sounds wrong to me.

See example:

I appreciate you.

I say that it is correct. Some does appreicate you. This is similar to what I was just asking. How about: "I appreciate your taking time with me." vs. "I appreciate you taking time with me." I think it's about "your taking." It's possessive; but I cannot find anthing on this subtlety.
