The Lost Art of Comma-Sense

Ok, if you are anything like me, you may have a comma fetish and be in need of a 12 step program. I cannot tell you the number of times I've submitted papers for classes, in the past, where I was inundated with little red blips and scratches, all surrounding commas. The funny thing is, there are some hard fast rules with useage of commas, BUT and I do mean Big BUT, there are a LOT of exceptions and gray areas.

I'm not even going to begin to go into the rules and exceptions of comma useage, but instead would just like to know if anyone else out there struggles with over/under use of commas. Am I the only one who has a history of comma-problems, or is it just considered the lost art of comma-sense?

Any thoughts?
