Now there are going to be people attacking me for calling it an "inner-greeting comma" rather than an "intragreeting comma" or "intra-greeting comma."

First of all, I've had it with your attacks. Lightning bolt! Lightning bolt!

"Inter-" means "between, among" and "Intra-" means "within, in" (Garner, 2009). So obviously if we have to choose between those two, we would choose "intra-greeting."

While there is no significant difference between "inner-greeting" and "intra-greeting," in my view, "inner-greeting" does sound better and is, to my ear, slightly more clear.

(I don't know what to write about today.)
