Downside of Grammarly

Understand why we should pay more attention to Murphy's wisdom and leave good enough alone.

As creatives, we don’t always follow a recipe. But there are some ingredients that you shouldn't mess with. Getting the grammar wrong in your writing is like adding salt instead of sugar.

It leaves a bad taste in the mouths of your audience.

When editing content, it’s easy to make a mistake with the wrong seasoning. That’s why we got a Grammarly account for our team.

We hoped it would be our chef who would ensure that all dishes are worthy of Michelin.

Turns out the software has a different taste. It keeps suggesting too many commas and almost always misses the context.

So instead of helping, it gets in the way.

Even though we tend to ignore Grammarly's suggestions, it’s good to have an extra kitchen hand to catch potential mistakes.

We wonder when the AI chefs will get the grammar-checking recipe right.
