I remember reading in an English style guide (The Scott Foresman Handbook for Writers) that the words
due to were quite redundant and not to be used. The author did not seem to like them as whilst was just another word for while and
due to was a rough form of saying because.
However, I've found myself using the due to quite often. For instance, I'm writing a long sentence that can have two
becauses. In that case I end up using due to in place of the second because. For example:
For a sincere and talented writer, all barriers to entry are finally removed because of the e-publishing phenomena, and that was only possible due to the Internet revolution pioneered by Tim Berners Lee in the early nineties.
What can I use in place of second because if I don't want to use
Also, I personally find it more elegant to say "Whilst" instead of "While". But is that the perception of most modern readers or not?
