Hi Teo,

Instead of simply quoting people, who are both trying to help you, to each other, I think you should invest a little work in this yourself. You could, for example, ask whoever says it is wrong to give you a reason. You could then think about that, accept or reject it, and perhaps learn from it.

Best wishes, Clive
According to Merriam-Webster's Concise Dictionary of English Usage, [with][along with][together with] are all quasi-coordinators.
