Hello trade,

I'm afraid this isn't the kind of service we provide. If you want to ask us about one of these sentences, telling us where you think the error is and why it's incorrect, we can help you with that, but our primary purpose is to help users with questions that are related to our website in some way.

All the best,

Hello Dr Kirk,

I'm confused about my use of verbs in this piece of writing. Please correct me, if the writing itself doesn't look grammatically OK thanks.

Hello Counsel,

I'm afraid we don't correct users' texts – we are simply too small a team – but I will say that your text looks correct and is intelligible. It's a nice idea!

Hello Dr Kirk,

Ok very nice
Thank you
