Becs

You are obviously having entirely too much fun at work. I am jealous. Should I send Yentl to you so you can understand the joy you presently have?

melati

I don't get it.

TheQueen

Becs - No! No Yentl!
Melati - Yeah, I was wearing my Technical Writer hat when this scheme was cooked up. If I remember, it was back when we were having wars with another technical writer who sniped about "the arbitrary comma rules" we were using, and then I think one person screamed "The Chicago Manual of STYLE is ARBITRARY?" and we all bonded in our love of specific punctuation marks. Or, in my case, punctuation and body parts. Brenda and Marcia went instead with their least favorite proofreading issues.

melati

Huh. I still don't get it.

Caroline

The Harvard comma is never incorrect and often clarifies.

TheQueen

It is clear, valid and useful.

Vaguely Urban

I would have like to have represented the semicolon in honor of my -ahem- irregularity.
