    comma use

    Hello everyone,

    YYY is a site on the Internet registered as a mass medium.

    Do I need to use a comma after "Internet" in the sentence above.

    Thank you.

    Re: comma use

    I wouldn't.

    I don't see any reason to do so.

    KLPNO, instead of sending your thanks in a separate message, just click the Like button please.

    The reason is that it is flagged as a new post, so we think you might have a follow-up question or something to add. Those of us with slow connections and/or old computers have to waste valuable time waiting for it to appear.

    Thank you.

    Thank you.
    I would use a comma too. When I read your sentence the first time, I read "the Internet registered as a mass medium" as one thing on which YYY website exists. Only when I read it a second time did I realise what it meant.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
