I'm so glad Shakespeare, Twain et al didn't have no fuckin' grammar checker, because if it was for this shit which tells me that the passive voice should be removed we would never have had The Merchant of Venice, A Midsummer's Night or Those Two Idjits From Verona. I'm feeling tempted to start copy-pasting chunks of A Connecticut Yankee to see if I can get Word to have a stroke. Wonder what would it think about Dickens... run-on sentences anybody?
Give it Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. Far shorter, and guaranteed to give any grammar checker fits.
