You've got to be joking me..

I bet it'll have changed by the time anybody reads this entry, but still:
But in its home town of Newcastle, the streets around the bank were quiet.

Bobby Robson former mnaager of Newcastle United to show some support for north east company employes more than 4,500
I'm sorry? What does that last paragraph actually say?

I mean, this just proves that there is no proof reading going on, and they don't even spell-check articles before posting.. So professional...

It's changed now, but still not right..

"here has been a general sense of support for the lender which employees about 4,500 people locally"

Nope - five and a half hours later, and it's still wrong.. In the above quoted text, "employees" should read "employs". And I think their comma usage is a little off, but I'm not one to judge on that front...

The commas are spot on.

The comma after "north east" looks superfluous to me.. The sentence would read absolutely fine without it.

The first comma is no more or less necessary than the second.

I disagree.. The second comma is kind of important to me - if it just said "the lender which" it kind of seems like it's identifying which lender they're talking about.. "The lender which has a blue logo".

With the comma, it's far more obvious that it's a description of the lender.. If you see what I mean..?

Is that "I know what you mean" or "What you sayyyy?!!"?

That said, I agree that a pause might belong there, but as everybody always tells me - a pause isn't the same as a comma :o)
