In English, you cannot end a sentence with a preposition.
Sorry, couldn't resist. 😛
Actually, you are only moderately correct. Ending many proper passive
English sentences requires ending with a preposition. Every textbook I've read says you cannot end with a preposition. Yet, there are many times where reorganizing the sentence without the ending preposition is more awkward. I think we can all agree to that. Oxford Dictionaries states that a passive English sentence is one exception to the rule you stated. Being a man of science, I know that almost every scientific law/rule has an exception. The same can be said for many rules/laws in every field of study. After all, isn't it the exceptions that establish the rule?
Quote: "There’s no necessity to ban prepositions from the end of sentences. Ending a sentence with a preposition is a perfectly natural part of the structure of modern English."
My sentence would be just one example. But it was well spotted. I was actually waiting for someone to bring that up. 🙂

Edit again: If I kept your rule 100% then it will be a the sort of English up with which I will not put....
How about I just end with the prepositions and say, 'It will be a sort of English with which I will not put up with." 😀
