So will there be a grammar correction team formed?

You should bear in mind that we are among the few abandonware sites that actually write reviews ourselves. Others (like Underdogs) usually just pen down a few sentances and then link to another review.
That concidering there are a few mistakes I've spotted, but none of them really make you cringe in disgust.

Believe me, if you're an English major and/or you spend a lot of time proofreading essays for an English professor or tutoring English students, constant grammar problems do make you cringe. Imagine having to proofread a 7 page essay that was meant well, but poorly organized and filled with grammar and punctuation errors. It's not fun.

Addressing everyone else: See, the importance of good grammar and punctuation is not to make life more miserable for you, but rather to make your work more fluid and easier to read for your target audience. One of the three reasons I had joined this site was because I hoped that the reviewing community would learn from example. A good chunk of Abandonians speak English as a second language, and it would be good for them to learn from someone who always knew English and whose discipline is English. I gave up writing reviews here because of the bad attitudes some people gave me during my time here. I had hoped to speak with Kosta about starting a grammar program where reviews are not posted right away, but are first cleared by grammar "coaches" who review the review and give the reviewer tips in private for writing based on any problems that were in the review.
