Grammarly is utter garbage. It's touted as a software for 'writers' - it is actually a software to teach people how 'not to write'. You see that sentence I just wrote? Grammarly would find fault with it, telling me that it was 'difficult to read'. Yes, it is indeed difficult to read - if you assume that the human race all have the average intellectual power and reading capabilities of a $#*!ed chimpanzee! If you listen to Grammarly's suggestions, you will lose all sophistication in your writing, and sound as if you were writing for kindergarten children - or those said chimpanzees.

There's no need to underestimate the human race - remember that in $#*!ens' time, even the man on the street could understand and appreciate his works. $#*!ens, Thackeray - take any or all of the great writers, the MASTERS of the English language - and Grammarly would find fault with almost every sentence they wrote.

Grammarly should stop putting their silly, stupid advertisements up all over the net. If any of them survive into the future, archaeologists will use them as evidence that humanity in this age, and taken as a whole, were almost illiterate - and perhaps even regressing in terms of evolution back to the chimpanzees I mentioned earlier.

And that was a message written without the aid of Grammarly.

This is a very disappointing penpal site. First of all, a great many of the profiles here are fake - there is perhaps 1 genuine profile in a 100 - I'm NOT kidding. I wonder if the site puts these profiles up itself. Anyway, these fake profiles never answer you, which means you spend a lot of time on the site sending out messages that are never answered. Frustrating. And meaningless.

Combine these fake profiles with the horde of genuinely obnoxious asian guys who swarm all over the site looking for sex chats from girls, and whose profiles are never deleted.

Then there's the fact that people seem oddly illiterate on interpals - it's a 'penpal' site, but no one there seems to know how to write letters! As a matter of fact, in using interpals I began to get the feeling that the human race was forgetting how to read or write! I'm NOT kidding.

Finally, while the moderators tolerate a horde of sex-mad asian guys on the site, I have had the profiles of good and genuine friends randomly banned on the site. This was horrible - fortunately, I had their email addresses, so I did not lose them as friends, but I don't have to tell you how frustrating and confusing the experience was for them. Knowing there are hordes of obnoxious people on the site whose profiles are NOT banned only makes things worse.
