You do know that you're allowed to ignore idiots who don't know anything about the language, don't you? Every rule that's even remotely associated with "in-line lists" and "parallelism" dictates the use of a terminal comma (before the "and"), so anyone who declares differently is an idiot.

Just because an idiot has his idiocy published in a book doesn't make it less idiotic.

I mean, if we ignore the travesty that is "Charlotte's Web of English Usage" (Strunk & White), the worst writer in the world on the subject was Fowler, so ignoring his bollocks is not only possible, but recommended!

If anyone gives you any hassle about your choices, give me a shout, and I'll provide more than enough chapter and verse to make them STFU.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
