she is deserving of our respect. But some people might want to debate her choices. I don’t suggest this debate, of course. It’s her decision that “invites us.”


What a lovely passive construction. Concern trolls thrive on passive constructions the way vultures thrive on carcasses.


The simile is startlingly inept. Think about the vulture lifestyle: Petri seems to be suggesting not that concern trolls like passive constructions or deploy them a lot, but that they gorge on the corpses of dead ones that they find lying around. We should probably ignore this,cheap air jordans (http://www.airjordanshoesreal.com/), though, because it is pretty clear that she wants to accuse Keller of writing them,cheap jordans free shipping (http://www.cheaprealjordansretro.com/), not of eating them.


Which brings us to the question of what inspires her exclamation, “What a lovely passive construction.” Petri explicitly repeats “invites us” in quotation marks,cheap jordans online (http://www.cheapjordan1s.com/), but this (or rather, the phrase invites us to think about it) is a transitive verb phrase in the active voice. Active transitives are exactly what the writing gurus always insist should be used instead of passives! So that can’t be it.


I examined the rest of the passage carefully (for the full analysis,cheap air jordans (http://www.onlineairjordan.com/), see this Language Log post). There are no passives whatsoever.
