S: Seasons of Change

FC: The rule is: don't use commas like a stupid person.

1: Demoralizingly incorrect | The latter is correct and will indeed save an unsuspecting grandpa.

2: Both are correct because the Oxford Comma is optional; nevertheless, I still prefer to use former. | This error is known as comma splicing, a comma in between two independent clauses without a coordinating conjunction.

3: This is missing the article "the" before "disabled" and a series of commas to ward off any unwanted misunderstanding. | This is another error in comma splicing.

4: Ironically, the sentence itself is wrong as well. | The sentence concerning dogs may not need an Oxford Comma; however, starting a sentence with "And" is discouraged.

5: Correct punctuation is important! | This is a good example of the Oxford Comma.

6: Incorrect | It is always good to make sure that text on your clothing is grammatically correct like this one.

7: Unless there are extremely intellectual cows in the area, this is wrong. | This is correct because the list is appropriately punctuated in addition with the dependent clause.

8: Commas notate numbers for every three digits, not two. A period should be there. | Missing commas can cause very condescending messages.

9: This is an unnecessary comma. It is indeed a failure. | The sentences at the bottom use the comma correctly after a dependent clause.

10: Most likely, there should be a comma right after "inside." | An apostrophe might be less shocking, but "Nacho's" would still be wrong.

11: It has come to this...Punctuation abuse has become so rampant that pandas must fix them.
