Okay, so I’m a bit of a pedant. I’m fine with this little detail. It does irk me to see text-speak, word-murder in forums, and it bothers me all the more when I know the people responsible for such mutilations are adults. That said, I do get a little kick out of punctuation blunders that slip under the radar, then end up printed on a large scale in: books, magazines, papers, news, etc. Commas do indeed matter, and proper punctuation is awesome.
