    As far as I know using those words should be avoided in academic writing only , am I right?


    Not a teacher.

    In our academic writing class it is taught that for ex: instead of writing "I think" ,we should write "It can be said that" to illustrate the objectiveness of the adacemic work.

    Oh yeah, you are right. In academic writing, we are not allowed to use words such as "I", "me" and you. It's too informal.

    You still haven't answered the question as to why you have asked this question.
