Your English teacher was right, punctuation matters.

Believe it or not, I try to write correctly and coherently.  I fail, but I try.  I consider it a success on the rare occasions when achieve either of these goals.  But this blog is just the rantings of a curmudgeon, nothing important, and certainly not a legal document.  I hope I would have the sense to have both grammatically and technically proficient people review anything important if the need ever arose.  Unfortunately for Rogers Communications, they signed a contract with an extra comma where it (according to them) didn't belong.  It may turn out to be a $2.13 million comma.

You can take this commatastrophe as a lesson about the importance of proper communication and use of language, or simply laugh at a cable company getting screwed by comma, or a bit of both.
