Cheerio to the Oxford Comma

The Oxford comma, or serial comma, beloved of many editors and writers, and drummed into the heads of school children everywhere, has been axed by the very institution that gave it its name.

The University of Oxford has dropped the Oxford comma.

And it's about time. It's useful when it eliminates ambiguity and makes meaning clear; otherwise, it's clutter.
