Yes Papi Joe I know and accept that - I am usually a pedant of the first order about my own writing (although not that of others, always bearing in mind that I am not aware of the circumstances under which the post is being made) - however this morning I was posting from my phone and punctuation isn't its strong point. Bearing in mind that most posters write in a conversational manner, I made the calculated decision not to make the effort to insert the comma, knowing that the regular members would understand my meaning when reading my post in context.
When writing short stories, essays, plays and poetry my punctuation is more punctilious - however, when posting from a phone most people nowadays accept a slightly more punk approach - in future I shall have to remember that I'm not the only pedant on board and that I'm being marked with a red pen.
