danger, Warning: Caustic, caustic

The Grammar Grrrmudgeon demands commas!

Public service announcement:

"However" should always, always, always be followed by a comma.

The sole exception is when it's surrounded by quotation marks, as above.

Invariably, if you begin a sentence with an adverb, it should also be followed by a comma.

Please adjust the Internet accordingly.

(Does anyone else find themselves trying to wiki-edit non-wiki pages when they find errors like this?)
