I have just found this.
1). When though is used with a verb in the subjunctive mood (expressing doubt, a condition contrary-to-fact, a wish, a concession) is followed by yet and not by but;
Though he might not have recognized me, yet it is rude of him.
Though she disallowed me, yet I will go to her.
Though he is poor, yet he is respected.
2). When though is used with a verb in indicative mood (expressing a fact or making a statement) a comma is used in place of yet.
Though he is my relation, I shall not spare him.
Though she is known to me, I shall not favour her.
(GMAT Grammar: Though ..... yet)
I am wondering whether it is correct and why it isn't talked about in PEU by Micheal Swan, PEG by Thomson&Martinet,UUEG by B.S Azar or dictionaries.
I had a look at the blog you got the examples from- much of what she says is OK, but don't take it as authoritative as there are mistakes. For example, in the section you quoted, she says that though is followed by a verb in the subjunctive mood and then says Though he is poor- the subjunctive form would be Though he be poor, which sounds very strange to me.
Thank you. OK. I couldn't agree with you more , especially at the bold sentence.
And another link.
With that one, have a look at the first sentence they want you to put into the passive:
