Passive aggression


Bob Harris makes a very keen observation over at TMW regarding the use of the passive voice as a manipulative tool in headlines.

I found it particularly interesting, as I have often been accused of writing too much in the passive voice. (*cough*)


Were you accused by the Microsoft Word grammar checker, by any chance?

Why yes I was.

hey. does anybody know anything about passive agressiveness. i was diagnosed but im not quite sure what it really is. i would appreciate it.
