    You are to be congratulated for this idea you came up with. More awkward sentence structure: prepositions at the end of sentences should be pointed out.

    There is nothing here for me to do anything with.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Let the passive-aggressive voice be spoken!

    My love is given to the passive voice.

    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    Poor language use has really gotten my goat recently.

    Adjectives and adverbs are regularly mangled by a new classmate. The word describing the incorrect dimension/quality is always chosen by her.

    Language is also abused by literary critics. A particularly egregious example of non-parallelism was discovered last night in a "peer-reviewed" essay. The concepts of living on through a religious afterlife and living on through gene propogation were compared by the writer, but the sentence instead compared "the american home" to "religious promises".

    Someone needs to start a mangled spelling thread.

    By December, I will have moved to a new place in Hollywood. Oh, damn, wrong thread. Can you kindly direct me to the Future Perfect thread?

    Seriously, though, I RARELY use passive voice when writing, unless it's fiction (which pretty much never happens).

    I am a corpse and you all are fucking me. Could I be anymore passive?
