What is passive voice, and why is it so bad?

For years I have been told that I write with a lot of passive voice, but I have never really understood what this is and why it is so bad. Is this just a bunch of baloney, or is there something really wrong with using the passive voice that I do not appreciate? Assuming that I really should stop using the passive voice, how do I learn to avoid it? What worked for you?
