I saw a similar question some time ago. I can't find it now that I need it though. I was checking an article with Grammarly, and was surprised to see the suggestion it gave regarding the following:
"However, returning to the matter of Blood Magick, it is the essence of Self through the magician's DNA signature and the properties of the color red, that make blood so thoroughly effective in magick."
The word 'make' was underlined in red and labeled incorrect. Grammarly makes a lot of contextual errors, but still it got me to thinking. It's make, right? not makes, as they suggested?
Yes it's 'make', because the cause of the effect are more than one. Had it been singular, it would be 'makes'.
Julia makes Andrew cross.
Julia and Jenny make Andrew cross.
One time I wrote, "Don't do this, you'll be fine 100$", but Grammarly wants to change the "fine" to "find".
At present, I'm not active with grammarly. But I do know for sure that the tool or software is liable to make serious blonders. I honestly mean the FREE version as I had never been/be at home with the paid verse. The later is quite expensive as a grammar checker, and wonder if its' for all type of. English grammar usage. Now will a kind soul copy and paste the sentense "I had never been/be at home with the paid verse." You can delete each verb been/be and see how the sentense run. .
The correct version is, "Don't do this, you'll be fined 100$".
I have installed Grammarly too (the free version) and find that it makes quite a few errors.

I'm not sure which is correct:Cross-cut saws were used to cut up trees which had been felled by an axe, into manageable sections.Cross cut saws...

Is it possible to use such a feature? If Google can locate bad grammar on websites, what about a site wide grammar checker or filter for us? Is that possible?

I've been using Grammarly lately and I think its very helpful for a lunkhead like me, especially when it comes to updating and fixing old articles. I use the premium version that whooshes my text away to their site and lets me fix it up before plopping it back into my Hub. I read a few articles...

A few years ago, I decided to self publish on my site. To help with this, I found a program called Grammarly to help with my terrible typing, and well, I needed help. The program links into this site and others such as Twitter. This is by no means an advertisement for the program. There are a lot...
