Commas as parentheses?[change]

I'm having a hard time thinking that this information is accurate:

"You can also use commas as parentheses, but you need to write the sentence differently.
ex. Billy, who wrote about karate, and Bob, who wrote about dogs, wrote their papers."

Surely this isn't right, is it? You can use commas instead of of parentheses, but that doesn't make them parentheses. What does anyone else think? · Tygrrr... 15:58, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
