  2. Although I am a big fan of the semi-colon, I think a comma would probably have been more appropriate in this instance.

  3. Yeah, as Kel and any other friend who knows me well can attest, I definitely spent more time mulling over the design and phrasing and grammar of the bumper sticker than most other people would have. I still stand by my semicolon because what follows is a complete thought, a separate and independent clause that could be its own sentence. Other punctuation marks could have been the em dash (—) or a period. As the Purdue OWL explains, using a comma would be a comma splice because it would come in between two independent clauses without a coordinating conjunction.
