Thanks for the shout-out, Susan! Agreed, language in general affords us multiple ways to express ourselves, hence when grappling with a thorny sentence, re-wording is often the more elegant solution rather than throwing more punctuation at the problem .
I do use the Oxford comma, selectively, when the complexity of the phrasing demands it, as in:

But I will tirelessly debate those who claim that more commas are called for to clarify:
