taking writing courses in college and a couple of AI courses on report
writing, I utilize the following guidelines:
I avoid third person
references to myself. I try not to use the passive voice. I avoid
"insider" lingo. I took the words "deemed" and "appears" out of my
lexicon long ago. My goal is to communicate, not to obfuscate. I have
never gotten a request asking for more clarity on any of my reports.
