I freely admit that of all the punctuation marks commas cause me the most confusion. I definitely suffer from comma-itis—using them far too much.

I've nicknamed commas Satan's Fleas, as the damned things jump around irritating me. Thankfully, there are free proofreading apps such as Grammarly, Hemingway Editor and Typely to find my errors

It's not just me who has problems, for as Oscar Wilde said,

"I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning and took out a comma...In the afternoon–well, I put it back again.”

Anyhow, I came across this erudite article about how to use commas without looking like an idiot:
