One-second grammar rant.

Commas, people. Learn them, use them, and stop writing these ridiculous fucking long sentences with no commas. Just, stop.

One-second grammar retort: There should be no comma in your final sentence.

The Boss decided to give up the Oxford comma sometime around my second year in grad school. I like it, so I decided that anything I was first author on would have 'em. I would leave them out up until final submission, which was the point beyond either of us caring. Ah, memories.

I concur.
Capitalization and spelling is important too.

I assume that by posting this rant on your blog which is read by lots of scientific geeky sorts of people that it is highly likely that I am far from the first person to respond with a geek post that is somewhat improperly, punctuated.
