Oxford shmoxford

Oxford has dropped the Oxford comma.

I have not. It serves a useful purpose in nonfiction, and it is a non-issue in nonfiction.

From now on I will refer to it by its other name, the Harvard comma. If Harvard drops it, I will just call it a serial comma.

Maybe Oxford will come to its senses in time for their next edition.
