Okay, I chickened out and removed it from my first post, but I’ll say it again: When I first saw a picture of young Stalin (without knowing who it was), I was like, “Hmm, he’s rather attractive!” 😛
So if it were young!Stalin in the tassels, I could probably live with that.

@LGenz: This is one of those times it would be needed for clarification. lol But otherwise, I agree with you. I don’t like the Oxford comma and never use it. It not only looks clunky, it’s not standard in journalism so I was never trained to use it.

@PutABirdOnIt: This. The picture is amusing, but I find them to be unnecessary in most cases.

Oxford commas depend on the context and who you’re writing for. Great example of a need for clarity, though.

I am totally an oxford comma person.

@Mrs Grape: A friend of mine studied history and said the same thing in a tutorial – she got some strange looks!

I’m an Oxford comma fan. I don’t think it looks clunky, I think it looks proper. Lack of an Oxford comma, while I know is technically correct as well, looks lazy and sloppy to me. Just my opinion.

I have always used an Oxford comma because that is what is taught to you in elementary school.
