I suck at commas. Always have! I usually put too many in, though. (Like, was that one even needed? I don't know. Bah.)

Girl, same. I overuse commas because I assume more commas are better than none?

YES! Exactly! Lol I see people on FB putting, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY PERSON!!" And I'm like, "Shouldn't there be a comma in there?!" And I always second guess myself. Damn commas...

Oh I kind of suck at them too! But long run on sentences kind of like this one where there's no grammar or commas or sense or break in the words or ideas like girl please you passed the third grade right

That's what I'm talking about, I don't know shit about "proper comma rules."

Swoosh.


In the UK commas aren't as important because they honestly don't care about comma splices the way we Yankees do.

BUT I have guidelines for US comma use at home so I'll post them when I get back. Off the top of my head:

Use Commas:

1. To cut off introductory phrases

2. To signify information that my not necessarily important to the overall clause

3. To separate items in a list (oxford comma optional pending on style guide)



And I think there are five more uses I can't remember.

Real life pet peeve?

I hate when I'm pretending to be an editor and the person I'm editing switches between using it and not... Then stare at me like an idiot when I ask them about it. Yes, the Oxford comma is something you need to acknowledge in your Style Guide.

Speculation that goes on and on for so long that people start assuming it's all true.

Sometimes after a while it's hard to tell what's real and what is long-running speculation. Especially if the speculation was around before your time.

I find this with this and another forum I participate on.

Yes. That can definitely be rough... I think it's important to still explain that x is all speculation and not fact based even though it's been mentioned many times.

Like what Chris does for a living.
