I read your post, SomeDude, but I'm no good at grammar terms, so sorry...

Yet, I thought "to be" takes no object? (but that may just be because I don't know the grammar terms...)

I'm not great at this either, but here are my thoughts. If I don't write anything, I agree with you.

The chair is comfortable. S-V-PA

I like your new dress. S-V-O

It was you at my door. S-V-PN

We live here.
S-V-O - There has been discussion about "here." It's not an object - but hopefully someone else can help with this.

I don't know that I really helped. But I think you can have confidence in the ones I agree with you on. Good luck.
