revised Using funny error messages in Finance
Restoring the punctuation by the author. This typography is more correct. Furthermore, these curly quotes are in harmony with the curly apostrophes of the text.

@HakanIsik - At last ! Finance is just... finance - with a small "f".

comment Does the Oxford Comma increase readability?
My interpretation is that the sentence misses symmetry. It looks that an apposition for "my father" starts but never ends. The sentence is not correct. It means nothing to me.

Your commas and period inside the quotes are absurd. As absurd as the big U in "About Us".

Your sentence "I gave gifts to my father, Jim and to Beth." is awkward. It makes no sense to me.

This is my favourite answer. And a list can be formatted inline.

The ampersand trick is neat. With the ampersand, the writing gets clarified but there is an ambiguity in speech.

@OllieFord - In the comment by J..., we have an example where it is better not to put the last comma.

@Shog9 — Exactly. What about the following other “clever” idea ? “Disabling right click.”

comment Stop user opening links in a new tab
This is a very bad idea. This is not accessible. Furthermore, disguising your fake links as true links makes the users wonder why they are buggy. Thus the users think your site is crappy. And they are right.

comment Why do physical keyboards still have built-in numpads?
@Luaan — Exactly. On french keyboards, the top row of digits needs Shift. I press Shift 2 to enter a 2.

I would like to actually see the keys of the Warcraft keyboard. We cannot see them, they are too small on the photo.

@Mladen — But a smard card reader in keyboard is a bonus. A keyboard is for keys to type. The numeric keypad is a group of keys to type. So it's perfectly at its place on a keyboard.
