When do I use commas, dammit.

If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it fits here

Good point, but honestly, isn't a question mark a bit casual for "dammit"? An exclamation point should follow the question mark:

When do I use commas, dammit?!

Almost three years later, I accept the weighty responsibility of comma placement. I go a bit overboard sometimes, and often allow my passive-aggressive dark side to manifest via the use of the Oxford comma. No one at work has called me out on its use, complained, or even said anything about it. I did once get busted with haiku. Once.

Uh, I thought you meant comas, sorry.

You might like Truss's take, if you can get past the British / American baloney that worked critics up.
