Isn't there a punctuation error (extraneous comma after "offered") in this sentence offering corrections for punctuation errors? :tongue

Their tagline needs some work, too.

We write with inspiration, then grammar and vocabulary get in the way.

Corrections and/or alternatives will be offered, for errors such as wrong words, wrong spelling, punctuation, word and tense consistency, which is covered by the Basic, but also with a few extras, such as consistency in tone, verbal tenses and word choices. It also includes suggestions for changing badly structured, or badly worded sentences and paragraphs.

Gracious, they're certainly fond of commas, aren't they? However, this English teacher wonders if they know the difference between a verb and a verbal.

Please tell me you made that first sentence up as a funny, funny joke. I started dropping bread crumbs by comma two.

Being a novice writer with poor grammatical skills and no knowledge in the formatting, publishing, marketing, and distribution arenas, it was quite providential that I came across Mark and Angel Editing.
So instead of learning, you're gonna pay someone to do it for you?

And one of the client's quotes the editor as a reviewer.
