Dear professional technical writers,

I've seen quite a lot of sentenses with dangling phrases or participles
in fairly well-written technical documentation. Grammer books generally
suggests NEVER to use dangling phrases/particiles. But some books also admit
that these days many people preferably use them though they are still
as incorrect usage. I'm just confused! Are there any general guidelines
to dangling phrases/particiles usage? I'm grateful if you suggest some tips.
