For e.g: If I write Sun, Moon and stars... Grammarly would write it as Sun, Moon, and stars. A comma before the word 'and' is not necessary. Similarly, if I write Sun and Moon, but the stars... Grammarly would write it as Sun and Moon but the stars. It will remove the Comma before the word 'but'.
Also, Grammarly would write colour as colour, behaviour as behavior, It has some problem with iou.
No life without Sun
Underlining the errors makes it easy for us to understand that there is an error.
In my case, while typing my mind is on sprint and hands are lagging behind to coop with the brain. Many times I have errors and Grammarly is very helpful.
The English grammar being used by Grammarly is in US format, while we Indians are in habit of using the British system of English language.
Mostly if you all have noticed that Grammarly emphasis on using of articles. There are many places wherein we are not required to emphasis but Grammarly suggests us to do it, I have a suggestion for the new users, stick to your system of grammar and don't get carried away by the suggestion of Grammarly. Only use Grammarly for spelling errors or other small issues.

Even this challenging situation would ease
Also, we've had many discussions in our forum on the validity of the corrections made by Grammarly and have informed members not to be wholly relying on it. The tool is not human and will not be able to think of the context used. Some words will be accepted by it as logical, too, such as yarn, when actually we meant yawn. As for punctuation, yes, I also am quite confused with Grammarly's corrections.
Coming to the query asked at the end of this thread's text - indeed, an error is an error and it needs to be rectified, but with due thought and care (as per the aforementioned pointers), not making it any more of an erroneous mess.

I agree with the author that error is an error and we have to correct the error. But in that attempt, we should not do another mistake. So it is always better to check and decide which is correct.
But Grammarly is a very good tool to improve our language and writing skills.
While studying in class nine, I was impressed with her style of narration where once she told me not to use then, if use is being used at the first word in the sentence. Likewise, there were other instructions as well and such minor instructions helped me a lot while writing.

Nowadays I check with MS word only as I find it more convenient. I have certain issues with my system which I am not able to solve and it creates some problems. As slowing down of faculties naturally set in gradually due to age, errors may creep in even when and where we never imagine.
So it now necessitates that even after using the tools again we have to review after posting is published. Sometimes we do it sometimes we forget or skip it in hurry.
If you write a piece of writing slowly and also go on correcting it in the process than for a 100 words post it takes on an average about 15-20 minutes including the final revision time. But if you write it in a speed it takes hardly 6-8 minutes and using Grammarly takes another 4-6 minutes making the total as 10-15 minutes and then in each post you save about 5 minutes. For a person who submits 4000 to 6000 posts in a year it is a saving of around 350 to 500 hours per year. Is not that a good amount of time you are gaining with Grammarly?
