Proposal: English Language Learners
As we know, proofreading involves checking for grammatical, spelling, and mechanical errors, which may include problems with verb tense, subject-verb agreement, parallel structure, sentence completion, alternate spellings, capitalization, and punctuation.
Since proofreading, as it is well-known, is quite instructive in the learning process, both for native and not-native of English language, I propose that ELL might allow this type of questions without the risk of having the standard answer "I'm sorry, but how is this not a proofreading request, and thus off-topic?"
Yes, I understand, it is not possible to consent very long text in question, but, then, we could establish a limit (number of words? number of sentences? or both?).
As an example, I think questions like the following should be allowed on ELL, being the example text one of mine "piece" posted on Skeptics.SE - https://skeptics.stackexchange.com/questions/14190/are-men-smarter-than-women/14196#comment51777_14196):
English flavour in this piece[this is the title]
The following piece is a comment of mine posted on Skeptics.SE site, and I'm wondering if my phrasing has a proper English style. If not, what is wrong? How could I improve the piece?
I think there is a kernel of truth in stereotypes. Yes, men and women are much more biologically alike than not, but differences in the way our brains are built shed light on everything. As an evidence of that, think that the male brain is seeking and looking only for sex, while female is much seeking and looking for partnership and for choosing "the one."
