egregious errors

Grammar is such a magical puzzle. It's so pleasing to me that I could transform this monstrosity (taken from a model sexual harassment policy):

Harassment of this type is conduct, which creates a hostile work environment characterized by vicious, frequent, and reprehensible instances of harassment based on national origin, race, religion, gender, or age.

into this:

Harassment based on national origin, race, religion, gender, or age, particularly that which could be characterized as vicious, frequent, and reprehensible, is conduct which creates a hostile work environment.
