[MacMahon] Hours after coughing up a $500,000 fine, Mark Cuban is wearing a shirt with various money symbols to the Mavs-Grizzlies game. There are three commas on the left sleeve, as there are in a billionaire’s bank account.

Today, Mark Cuban got fined $500,000 by NBA commissioner Adam Silver. Tonight, at the Mavs game against the Memphis Grizzlies, he is wearing a shirt that has various money symbols on it. There are three commas on the left sleeve, as there are in a billionaire’s bank account, and he just so happens to be a millionaire. Interesting message being sent by him, I guess.

As someone who grades college students' writing, I see this mistake constantly. Fix this mistake and you will appear more professional when compared with the great number of people who don't.

Note: In British English, this rule is the reverse. The American way is objectively more aesthetically pleasing, though.

How important is the oxford comma in mathematics?

For those who do not know, an oxford comma is "a comma used after the penultimate item in a list of three or more items, before β€˜and’ or β€˜or’ ".

I've often noticed in various theorems and mathematical papers how significant this comma is to group together various conditions. Do you have any interesting examples of when this comma has saved you many days trying to decipher an un-comma'd condition?

Sorry for my english, it's not very good.

INTPs and Grammar, Punctuation, and Oxford Commas

Hey all,

I got into an argument this morning over the banning of Oxford commas in our company style guide. I myself am not much of a stickler for grammar so long as the language is clear and reads naturally. I happen to think Oxford commas add clarity and read more naturally - so while I often don't care much about grammar I found the ban illogical and irritating since I use them in my writing.

Fellow INTPs - do you consider yourselves sticklers, indifferent, or somewhere in between? Do you use oxford commas or no?

Backstory:

I only got swept in to debate because I was getting an earful from our marketing/comms person about having to remove all the oxford commas from some content I sent her for our website (I'm research). She demanded I stop using them altogether in my work and wouldn't give any answers on why they were banned in the first place. (From a quick investigation I did not find any styles that ban them completely) As I'm sure you all can relate "because it is" could poss

A comma changed my life

Thanks to whoever posted recently about using commas in filters. I hadn't used them before and now I've added them to a few filters. Example:

This was my old work focus filter. Actually it is a little more complicated than this but this is the nutshell

(P:Work* & today)|(P:Work* & overdue)

That would be everything in the work project and subprojects that are due today or overdue. Todoist sorts Overdue to the top. Which I guess is a good thing but if I'm not up to date then several overdue tasks could potentially push some hot item due today down to the bottom.

Rewriting the filter with a comma and asking for today items first like:

(P:Work* & today),(P:Work* & overdue)

Now, things due today are on top and overdue are next.

Everyone works differently so maybe this isn't for you. Thought it was worth sharing because others mind find interesting uses for filtering with commas.

Macro Rules for Optional Trailing Commas

Up until now I've been using two rules (either one forwarding to the other or just copy-paste), which just felt clumsy.

I've seen other posts suggest $($t:ty),*$(,)*, or the modern $(,)? variant, but the first allows infinite trailing commas and the second still allows a trailing comma on an empty list.

If you're like me, you find this obscene permissiveness to be almost as bad as the two rule solutions. Maybe even worse, since you're exposing your macro end-users to the shame of allowing their typo-ridden code to compile!

Fortunately, ? does actually provide the solution we've all been waiting for:

macro_rules! one_rule_to_rule_them_all {
    ( $($($t:ty),+ $(,)?)? ) => { stringify!( $($($t,)*)? ) };

New Comma 2 User Experience?

I’m posting this here because I find discord too noisy for thoughtful discussion.

I’m on my 5th day of OpenPilot 0.7.3 assistance in a β€˜20 Corolla hatchback. I purchased the system to help with my workday commute (~80 miles round trip, 95% interstate, variable traffic). So far I’d say I have had a good-but-not-great experience.

Install in this car was easy, even for someone who’s much more comfortable with software than hardware. Install should be a non-issue for folks with well-supported cars like the corolla. Upon first startup the C2 fired up, went through a driving calibration for about a minute and was ready to take over.

Driving on city/suburban streets is pretty shaky at this point. The car lurches its way through slow 25 mph curves in β€œsegments”, rather than as one smooth turn. Also IMO the accelerator and braking control can be overly aggressive at slow speeds. If you are being followed by another driver, they are probably wondering what the hell is wrong with you. S

Some additional color here. Many times people will send out a conference line in as:

(800) 555-5555 access code: 3434 which requires all callers to first call the number, then switch back to that screen on their phone, memorize the access code, switch back to the phone and enter it in. This really slows down the caller and the actual conference call itself.

Field Match
1,100 True
2,34 False
123,145 True

Tests:

[0-9]{3}$ does not work

[0-9]\{3\}$ does not work

,\d{3}(?!\d)$ does not work

.*?,.*(\d{3}).* this works. Not sure why - seems to wildcard everything up to the comma then captures 3 digits. This was from a post about capturing digits after a comma from a string, which probably explains the wildcard.

Trying to figure out the rules for using a comma after "which."

I've seen relevant rules on non-restrictive phrases, but they all use examples of embedded phrasing such as, "I ate a grape, which was against the rules, and became violently ill."

But what about when the "which" phrase ends a sentence?

Example: " This grape will allow the instructor to simulate violent cardiac arrest, which increases engagement and exemplifies the danger of eating grapes."

In the example above, should there be a comma before "which"?

Does this sentence need a comma? "On this day management would like to thank you for all your hard work throughout the year."

"On this day management would like to thank you for all your hard work throughout the year."

My boss said there should be a comma after day. Is that right?

Is it possible to automatically concatenate records of Outgoing Links in a single cell separated by commas, for each Post URL record? Each Post URL record (300 in total) has a different number of Outgoing Links (1800 in total).

I want to automatically concatenate all Outgoing Links for each Post URL record from this:

I need to count multiple text strings in a cell range when the text string is numbers separated by commas. My problem comes when I have double-digit numbers like the number 12, it counts it as if it was the number "1" and the number "2", instead of the number "12". Can you guys help me?

Weekly Song Discussion: LP1: I Stand Corrected, Oxford Comma, One (Blake's Got a New Face)

Howdy folks!

Each Monday, we will post a new, three song discussion thread. We're starting with LP1, their self titled album, and will do three songs each week from the album before continuing to Contra. After we finish all of the albums, we will do their lesser known, non-album songs as well!

This idea was from u/DoctorTayTay!

Potential Questions

  1. Which one is your favorite out of these three songs? Why?
  2. Where does Oxford Comma rank for you on the album?
  3. What is your interpretation of the songs?
  4. What is your favorite aspect of each song? Instrumentation, lyrics, etc.
  5. Who gives a fuck about an Oxford Comma?
  6. Do YOU give a fuck about an Oxford Comma?
  7. Have you seen those English dramas t^(OO)?

Enjoy!

UPDATE: I'm sorry for missing last week, folks! Honestly, shit hit the fan and I forgot. Hope y'all are staying safe and healthy out there!

I have a Python script that outputs a .csv file but I can't figure out how to remove the commas at the end of two lines within the .csv. How do I do this?

I'm a python beginner. I have a python script that takes data from one excel file (data.xlsx), straightens it in a certain format within a second excel sheet (excel2.xlsx), and outputs it to a .csv file (T.csv). Now, when this T.csv is opened in Notepad, there are two sets of unnecessary commas which I want to remove. How do I do this within the Python script? The first screenshot shows the unnecessary commas circled, with arrows pointed to the ideal setup (how it's supposed to look). The second screenshot displays the overall Python code.

Commas are used so weirdly on reddit

I don't know if this opinion is unpopular but legit nobody seems to know how to use punctuation. I mean it's reddit so you dont have to get all fancy with commas and semicolons or whatever but if you're gonna use things like commas in a sentence you should use them correctly.

Commas are used to make a short break between two sections of one statement and the placement of them has to make sense you can't just slap one in somewhere and call it good. For example "my dog is very cute" does not need a comma. That is one coherent thought that does not have any additional details or any other subject matter. You dont need to say "my dog, is very cute" because you don't pause between the words "dog" and "is". If you were to add on to that sentence by using a FANBOYS words (For And Nor But Or Yet So) or a transition word (words like then) you would use a comma to separate the two sections of the sentence and put a short break.

Example: the two sentences "my dog is very cute" and "he has a lo

"which" and commas

I understand the difference between non-restrictive and restrictive when the commas separate something that is completely irrelevant (in a very obvious way). e.g., Pete worked at the gas station, which recently raised gas prices, so he could afford to go to college. Its plainly obvious that the gas prices have nothing to do with going to college.

However, in this case below, it is not clear to me if the middle part of the sentence is relevant or not.

"The old truck which had been lurching along for miles finally sputtered and stopped."

There are 2 observations that I make about this sentence:

(1) "finally" might be confusing to someone if they don't have the prior history/context that the truck was lurching. Is it "finally" because its "old" or because its "lurching" (or both?). Its not clear to me if the reader needs to know about the lurching.

(2) The reason for my uncertainty is mainly because the lurching part ADDS more information to a sentence that may already make sen

Commas, Colons, and Dashes College Panda question about a sentence and restrictive/nonrestrictive clauses

I initiallyΒ got the question wrong because I put "No Change" because one of the uses for commas is to link independentΒ and dependant clauses together. I thoughtΒ the first half of the sentence was independentΒ and what follows the comma in the sentence would be dependant. I still believe that to be true, but that is not completely theΒ case.

The book mentions restrictive and non-restrictive elements or essential and nonessential clauses. Essential being necessary to maintain the meaning of the sentence(it does not receive punctuation). Nonessential clauses do require punctuation and they can be taken out to uphold the meaning of the sentence.Β  Is the reason(D) is the right answer is because "on all of Earth's beaches" is an essential clause? "On all of Earth's beaches" is a dependant statement, which is why I chose to keep the comma originally.

Comma AFTER the last item in a list

Are there any style guidelines someone can point to about when a list should be followed with a comma.

I encountered this example: β€œAnd when authority and leadership break down, people become more prone to lawlessness, violence, and despair, in the same way that a defeated army becomes more prone to panic if the officers fail to provide resolute leadership.”

At first I thought the comma after despair was a typo. Then I thought it was to separate a non-essential element. Now I think it’s there to emphasize that the β€œin the same way...” clause is modified by all three adjectives and not just β€œdespair.”

Is there anything in any style guide about when you should use a comma after a list. Even if this example follows β€œthe rules,” is it sloppy?

I tried looking for resources online but every possibly relevant result was drowned out by articles about the Oxford comma.
