Matthew Wong wanted to know about other people's experience with grammar

I was offered a copy of Grammatik, which I used for a while. It annoyed me
immensely by failing to deal with any sentence containing a section in
brackets (like this one), treating the first, middle and end sections as
three sentences, all of which it thought were faulty. It also kept
displaying a message box claiming that "This sentence may contain a passive
construction", or some similar wording. I don't have a degree in English,
but I'm reasonably competent, and I couldn't see the problem nine times out
of ten.

It may be that more recent versions of Grammatik have been better, but I
would still prefer to give my work to a human reviewer.
