> If you honestly believe the agent is obvious in every case where you use passive voice, then all is good, and it's up to the SME and/or Marketing to tell you otherwise (or not).


Chris, I think we are agreed! Only each post seems to raise a new can of worms…

Where you work, is it really the case that SME's and Marketing know enough about audience analysis to instruct the technical writer?

Cripes, there's an argument for not having a tech writer in your organisation if ever I heard one!

(OK, OK, I'm only half-pulling your leg!).

Best
