I read somewhere that if you r using commas in your meta description then some search engines consider commas as spam. How much is this right?
For Example if iam using

I would say that the excessive use may be considered sppam, but most se's dont care about the meta tags so I dont think it is a big deal. Just keep it reasonable to be safe. I have commas in all of my sites meta description tags and I have never had any problems.
Where did you read about the commas? Its not true.

Within the HTML of your page we have detected more than 3 commas in your description meta tag. This often signifies a keyword list (spam), which could result in your listing getting penalized by the search engines. We recommend limiting the use of commas in your description meta to no more than 3 for this reason.
