"It has been decided that...."
"An informational meeting will be held..."
I just had a little epiphany here at work. The writing that I produce and spend all my time reading (planning and government related stuff) is FULL of the passive voice. This is something that our teachers and professors tried to beat out of us again and again as we went through our schooling, yet it is absolutely rampant in our line of work due to the automatic C.Y.A. benefit it provides.
Do any of you out there see the same rampant level of overuse of this type of writing as I do?
