I had teacher preferences over the years, so sometimes I use the Oxford comma, and sometimes not, so it really depends on my mood

I just sometimes use it and sometimes not too, but only based on my own preference/feeling at the time. Also, 2 spaces.

I use the oxford comma (it can really help clarity sometimes). Regarding the spacing though, while I do find it unnecessary, it's not a bad thing. As a reader I could go either way, and as a writer I prefer not to type it. If my text editing software automatically inserts one then that's fine, but you'll never see me use it on Smitefire.
