Nobody wants to read such useless drivel on here: Go away!

Troll.
Trolling is usually accompanied bad grammar, and immature comments.
They can be racist, elitist, or anything else that has to do with stereotypes.

Re How to use commas in English.

Put commas before FANBOYS:

For – presents rationale ("They do not gamble or smoke, for they are ascetics.")

And – presents non-contrasting item(s) or idea(s) ("They gamble, and they smoke.")

Nor – presents a non-contrasting negative idea ("They do not gamble, nor do they smoke.")

But – presents a contrast or exception ("They gamble, but they don't smoke.")

Or – presents an alternative item or idea ("Every day they gamble, or they smoke.")

Yet – presents a contrast or exception ("They gamble, yet they don't smoke.")

So – presents a consequence ("He gambled well last night, so he smoked a cigar to celebrate.")
