    Necrophilia is often used by you to shout for attention.

    A quick google search and study on "passive voice" would've been appreciated.

    A Google search needn't be ran for the exact nature of the passive voice is understood by me.

    It has been found by me that to read in the active voice is far less difficult.

    It is found by me that participation in this thread is more than what was expected.

    However, it is apparent that the nature of passive voice was finally understood by Uber.

    It was assumed the inclusion of the subject in the way done in the previous post was still considered to be passive voice.

    It should be noted that many things are known by Uber that he pretends not to.

    I found this thread interesting to participate in. You are to be congratulated on thinking it up. We should be notified of other good ideas you come up with.

    There is a place for passive voice. However, often, more clarity is given with active voice.

    Notification will come in the formation of a new thread or a post in an old thread.

    It was discovered a few minutes ago that this thread existed. Much laughter was enjoyed by me in the reading of it.

    The author learnt passive voice in a similar way to rhinosaur. The use of 'me' in that context is to be frowned upon.
