I'm lucky if I even wear pants, when listening to them.

But that's me.

I'm not sure there's a misplaced coma there.

Oh, there most certainly is.
Had you said "When listening to them, I'm lucky if I even wear pants", there would be a comma, but not the way you phrased it. It's simply "I'm lucky if I even wear pants when listening to them"

To me, a comma is sometimes very important, and some times less critical.

For example the difference between "fuck this gang", and "fuck this, gang".

But the comma in your original post was superfluous.

In those examples, it's very important
(or "It's very important in those examples")

Can someone back me up on this shit???

Don't you like the Oxford comma? You have no business berating someone for misuse of commas if so.

Only a savage wouldn't want to use an oxford comma. Is the ink low on your typewriter?
And this is irrelevant. His comma was out of place. How do you guys expect me to efficiently police these forums under these conditions??

although on second thought, this one doesn't work as much in favour of an oxford comma. It only works because you left out a normal comma

Yes. Although the general rule with introductory clauses is that a comma is only necessary if said clause is four words or more (pertinent to the example you have in the quoted post).
