    Would this help with passive voice?

    I am not happy with these suggestion, because you offer synonyms rather than see the word related to the sentence

    Please explain the diction selections. Simple words seem very elementary to me and I do not like them.

    The suggestions should be improved. They are irrelative and not useful.

    It would be very helpful to have suggestions that would reinforce the meaning instead of just stating that there is an issue with the writing. To have a touch of excellency is to have an easy accessible database within the website instead of having to access a totally different source, making things complicated.

    This website states that there is supposed to be suggestions when vague or abstract words are identified. I just wanted to let you know that there is no suggestions for problems in the writing.

    Okay, I do have a problem with this report. It wants me to dumb down my writing while another report wants me change the words to a higher level. Also, it isn't intuitive as to how a word is being used. Address has two ways of being used...a location or in talking to others. Warrant also has two meaning and when you are writing a story with a warrant for arrest, you don't need it indication you should substitute let/permit. Needless to say, this is one report I'll skip for my books as it is redundant.
