    Re: Are perfect tenses dying?

    Rules for writing, including punctuation, are published in documents called Style Guides or Style Manuals. Wikipedia has a good number of them in its article entitled List of Style Guides. Commas especially do not have hard and fast rules, so major publications set their own standards for writers to follow.
