Do not fear about Chad and his arguments re: passive voice. He is
a young person who questions authority and is brash enough to think
he has life figured out all ready....
I did not see any comments to him that seemed to be bashing....Not at
all. What I say was professionals, both industry and academic, taking
time from their busy schedules to educate one of my errant students.
He has actually taken it all in good humor.
BTW, I told him not to "mess" with the pros unless he was prepared
to be flamed.
