I used to edit for a magazine where one writer/editor had the most annoying--and pervasive--tic I've come across. She would construct sentence after sentence (paragraph after paragraph!) in the form "There are A, with B..." instead of using an active verb form, for example, "A and B [do something]." After fixing it more times than I can count and not seeing a change, I pointed it out directly. She either couldn't or wouldn't see the problem. It killed me to have my name as "copyeditor/proofread" in the masthead with all those awful sentences abounding throughout each issue.
