Comma splices seem to be a rampant problem on this wiki, I come across one on almost every article. I don't really care about being prescriptively correct, bad punctuation just makes text more difficult to read in my opinion. I am employing them here on purpose, it gets pretty annoying after a while.

Seriously, start a new sentence or use a semicolon. It's much easier to read. Dbbolton 09:18, May 21, 2011 (UTC)

Well, fix them yourself, or get off the wiki, because, I like commas. :3 Nitty Tok. 13:02, May 21, 2011 (UTC)
I find your statement, quite agreeable, I must say, old bean. --233345-cartman1 tinyUser Avatar talk 13:07, May 21, 2011 (UTC)

The comma is an important piece of punctuation, when used correctly, it is not for joining independent clauses, I do fix comma splices, I believe in treating the problem's source as well as its symptoms, look at my edits for examples, over and out. Dbbolton 20:11, May 22, 2011 (UTC)
