Hi, all! I've always thought that "reason" is uncountable as in "we have some reason to believe that he is guilty," except when you have a specific cause in mind as in "just give me one reason." However, I've recently noticed some people use "reason" as countable as in "there are some reasons to believe that he is guilty." What's your verdict on this? Thanks in advance!
Feel free to correct my sentences. I welcome them, not resent them!

must refer to "my sentences" because there is nothing else it can refer to! And you surely did not mean:
I welcome my sentences, not resent my sentences.
I think you wanted your "them" to refer to the corrections we are free to make. But the word "corrections" is not present in your previous sentence so "them" can't refer to it. You could write:
I welcome your corrections, not resent them!
