Hello all!

Thank you for many great responses and suggestions regarding my
recent posting on active/passive voice.

I want to take a second to clarify something. I think I gave the
impression in my original message that when the STC judges
made the comment about the use of " displayed" in our
manuals, that that was the reason we weren't winning awards.
We *have* won awards for several of our manuals over the last
few years, and for the manuals for which we didn't win awards,=20
there were other reasons in addition to our use of the passive
voice. I in no way meant to imply that the STC judges were too
picky and that's why we didn't win anything. On the contrary,
we anxiously await the judges comments each year, and a few=20
people in my department, myself included, have even been on the
judging committees.

Thanks again for all your comments!
