"The race was not lost by Joan" is a _boring_ version of "Joan won the race."

This is not an issue of maturity or attention span, and the concept of winning is difficult to grasp in the first sentence because the writing is poor.

I find that boredom in an individual is a product of immaturity and an
inability to grasp concepts not the writing. Welcome to the
short-attention span millennium.
