I get into trouble sometimes with students. I will tell a student something doesn’t work. The student will say, “Gotcha.” I will think all is well. Till the next time I see the student’s writing and the student will still be doing what I said doesn’t work. And I’ll say, Listen, you really can’t do this. And the student will say, “Gotcha.” Add water. Rinse. Repeat.
This happens with passive voice a lot.
