I always find that no matter how many times I proofread my writing, the
automated checker often catches something I missed. It's really hard
proofreading one's own work, especially if you're in a hurry or really sick
of what you've been working on. I always try to switch off the proofreading
tasks with another writer, so we each get some fresh editing.
