No.

I am encouraged when watching the Patriots play pre-season ball. The sentence is parallel to yours but makes more sense.

That's because the panyhose don't wear a skirt or a dress, and they don't feel encouragment.

If I could agree that it was anyone's business but my own what I was or wasn't wearing under my dress, I could accept the following:

The wearning of pantyhose is encouraged for ladies (or cross-dressers) wearing dresses or skirts. I don't like this much, but I'd accept it.

Better is: You are encouraged to wear pantyhose when you wear a dress or skirt.
How about-

Because I was unable to type the letter, the boss fired me.

Hi,

How about-

Because I was unable to type the letter, the boss fired me.

It's correct grammar.

the letter - some specific letter

a letter - suggests 'any letter'.

It would be better to say, "Because (or 'Since') I was unable to type the letter, the boss fired me."

Your sentence could imply that the boss was unable to type the letter.
Which sentence? The original once written six years ago? Emotion: stick out tongue

Please read the whole thread to make sure you're replying to current questions. In fact, this one should have been split off when it got to the panyhose discussion.
