Glassboy:kingjj: Oh Oh, next can we discuss the awesomeness of the comma? IE whether we should use the Oxford Comma or not (coffee, milk, tea, and jam VS coffee, milk, tea and jam)... lots of long pointless arguments in our house growing up over this abomination.
Sorry, is there actually a case for not using the Oxford comma?
The Wikipedia page on the Oxford Comma (aka Serial Comma) has a good pro/con list and reasons why you would or wouldn't use it. Many style guides dictate one way or the other, although the consensus (from what I've seen, especially in academia) seems to lean towards its use (although I'm personally against it).
