Personally, it's up to you. I read your fanfiction a lot and most of the time multiple times. I don't usually have problems, and if I do, I keep my mouth shut, because of this nice disclaimer at the beginning. Unsol. beta bad.

That being said, I've been a fanfiction reader for over ten years. I have seen some awesome fic ruined by poor writing styles and improper grammar.

Betas have their uses, and maybe when someone is just building their craft they may need that help as they build their skill set.

Writing is an Art. With all art, there is a learning curve. The more you do it, the more you educate yourself about what you are doing, branching out, and growing, the more you improve your craft.

Maybe in the beginning betas can help with that. They can point out where you need more work or where you are doing well. Sometimes having that mirror of a different perspective is immensely helpful.
