Of all things for me to correct in this, I can't help it, haha. But "It is fucking not that difficult" sounds TERRIBLE. It should have been worded, "It is not that fucking difficult." LOL - couldn't help it. But it's funny anyway!

Use a comma to separate the elements in a series (three or more things), including the last two. "He hit the ball, dropped the bat, and ran to first base." You may have learned that the comma before the "and" is unnecessary, which is fine if you're in control of things. However, there are situations in which, if you don't use this comma (especially when the list is complex or lengthy), these last two items in the list will try to glom together (like macaroni and cheese). Using a comma between all the items in a series, including the last two, avoids this problem. This last commathe one between the word "and" and the preceding wordis often called the serial comma or the Oxford comma. In newspaper writing, incidentally, you will seldom find a serial comma, but that is not necessarily a sign that it should be omitted in academic prose.

Haha - they said it right in that description that it's only there if it sounds like things will run together. It's alright to omit it, lol. English teachers aren't correct 100% of the time in what they pound into our heads, unfortunately.

My HS English teacher pounded into out heads that the words, "is, are, was, were, be, been, being, you, get & by" are passive words and should be avoided at all costs. You try writing papers with those words miss, LOL. Ugh - he was such a headache! >.

It says you dont have to use it yes, but it also says it should just be omitted because it can be. I will always use a comma between all items in a list, even the last two, its the right thing to do in my opinion.

"...put a space after him when you use him a sentence". missed an "in" there, lol. though when one is yelling at morons sometimes it's hard not to screw up sentence structure.

I cannot believe some people get so worked up by grammar. Seems like there are far more things to be angry about like animals neglect and abuse, domestic abuse, child molestations, kidnapping, murders, thieves, ect.

If I can't understand or read an entry because the grammar is really bad, I don't read it. Nor do I waste energy to get angry about it. That's just me though.

I agree! I majored in English, and I can not STAND grammatical errors in spoken language, however online, who cares? Although, that's probably due to the fact that I am TERRIBLE at spelling. My MAC has helped, though, as it spell checks everything I type in every program!

Golly gosh, yo! They kind of spoil the force of their message though, by saying 'you better know' rather than 'you'd better know'. And they failed to put the apostrophe in Down's. Gosh, I should hunt them down and write a furious reply about their retarded motherfucking errors!

"What the goddamn fuck is wrong with you" should instead be "What the goddamned fuck is wrong with you?"
