"had been" is past perfect continuous"Was" is just simple past (i think always passive, but maybe not?) They are different.  Past perfect continuous generally is used to for something that happened BEFORE something else that also happened in the past:I had been waiting for someone when she arrived I agree with Lorin about the phrase "the price had been reduced to XX." would be more by the book if it used simply "was," but I probably wouldn't have noticed if the Lorin...
Isn't it pretty disingenuous to make declarative generalized statements then simply say after the fact its your opinion?  Also, isn't it disingenuous to ad hoc post a few citations and tell someone to formulate an opinion based on information gathered from works, which, say, one might list as a citation, which is simply what I asked for in the first place? And isn't it disingenuous to discredit a device based on an opinion draped in declarative rhetoric when its clear [the...

It's neither. Old English tended to pronounce words based on the first syllable, which tended to create alliterative strophic poetry.After William the conqueror changed the official court language to French in 1066, French words entered the lexicon, which is why Chaucer is so different from, say, Gawain and the Green knight.French words (and Latin, which we borrowed from heavily in the Renaissance) have stresses in later syllables. So borrowed words (calques) have...
Not to mention the products they make are taxed (at least where I'm from and in at least some states) AND the employees are all taxed on their income.  I'm not necessarily arguing for low corporate taxes per se, but corporations do get taxed at LEAST 3 ways, 4 if you count sales
