To dispense with the first three points: the word "PEOPLE" clearly indicates that the 'gripes' are offered in response to participants in this thread, and the overall character thereof, and not to Ovid individually. If the shoe doesn't fit you, then don't try to wear it. No one asked you to put it on.

To dispense with the fourth point: let's just hope the words that may have charmed your socks off, didn't also charm your eyeglasses off. Those charming words are not a sentence, they are a subordinate subclause within a sentence. You may consult item five, subgroup six to see why the comma use is not inconsistent with the time-honored rules of English usage.

Perhaps you could assert that it is a run-on sentence, but such a trifling and dubious complaint would be a mere straw of maladroit verbal discontent, to add to the other such straws in this "pile" of a thread. Fortunately, the pile is meager and withering, and not the least bit likely to break the camel's back.
