I was never taught obligatorily to use or withhold the Oxford comma, but I use it anyway. It has applications with spoken cadence, being aesthetic, and minimizing confusion.

I never write commas before 'and'. It's a concatenate conjunction and commas mustn't be written before those conjunctions.

Yes, I'm a grammar nazi and proud to be one.

I've always been taught to use the Oxford Comma, ever since.... Maybe fifth grade? And now I'm so used to using it, I tend to flinch whenever books don't use it because it's so weird not seeing it used. ^^; Plus, I hate how people don't even bother to use spell check when they're typing on the computer, it shouldn't be that much harder to spell things out. Makes me wonder how much lazier people are getting these days. :noes:

Belated thought for those that disagree.

The people who would agree with me are my parents, Nelson Mandala and Indira Ghandi.

I always stumble awkwardly while reading if that last comma is missing.
