Grammar Crisis

I came across the following link, and now have a minor crisis because while the sentences in question are certainly meh, I don't understand how the diagrams prove in more explicit terms their mehness. This is a crisis because there are elements of those sentences which makes sense to me and I am afraid that this means I'm a terrible writer.

Nice link. Reasoningwithvampires has a lot of cool stuff if you care about writing. There's more to it than grammar, so the relevance of sentence diagrams shouldn't cause you distress.

It's not a matter of proof. Some of the complaints listed in http://reasoningwithvampires.tumblr.com/overview are more visible in the diagrams than in the original text, at least to an eye that has standard acquaintance with grammar.
