Is the use of the serial comma ever wrong? Here is a pretty current discussion of this so-called 'Oxford comma'.

Would you personally use it consistently in your writing? No, never, if you mean in simple cases like I like apples, oranges, and bananas. Moreover, I've never personally encountered the Oxford comma in use in Oxford in such cases.

Thanks, Clive. Have a nice weekend.

I, on the other hand, will never stop using the Oxford comma, whether in letters, essays, or even journal entries.

Here’s a more recent article clarifying that The Oxford University Press still uses the comma:

No, of course not. In fact, it usually doesn’t matter whether you use it or not.

It's always wrong in a simple list, and it's always right in a complex one. If its presence or absence causes ambiguity, recast the sentence instead of pinning your hopes to a punctuation mark.
Great advice, enoon.

Thank you.
