I would completely support this.

Why does the grammar and literacy test require a comma between the "I have read the Policies of Loathing" and the "and..."? :ugeek:

Any time you have two independent clauses (clauses that could stand on their own as a full sentence) joined with the word and, you need to put a comma before the and. Since "I have read the Policies of Loathing" and "I promise to abide by them" are both complete sentences, they need the comma before the conjunction.

Ah, so were it "and promise to abide by them" then there would be no comma. Fair enough.
