Is using passive voice "bad form"?
Whenever I create a document in Microsoft Word, it complains about a lot of my sentences being in passive voice. But, when I read that sentence aloud, it sounds fine to me. I am not sure if it is just me and will a statement in passive voice sound strange to a native speaker?So, my question is, is it considered bad form to use passive voice generally? Or in some specific cases like written communications only?
