** A place this comes up a lot is in the law, where transcripts of oral proceedings—trials, motion hearings, depositions, and so on—have to accurately reflect what was said at the proceeding. Even though the relative formality of oral legal proceedings and the parties' consciousness that there will be a transcript tend to create more natural breaks, the raw text can still be hard to read, and the transcriber has to make a lot of executive decisions about where to put punctuation.

* "On The Train" by Olga Masters is one of the most {{egregious}} examples. Despite the majority of the punctuation being relatively correct, the story contained no commas whatsoever.

This poor writer doesn't just use punctuation sporadically -- there's no punctuation, period. When taken to extremes it can result in a visual WallOfText, thus adding to its unreadability. Sadly, this happens outside of FanFics too, as many tropers could tell you. There are a few havens of good style, [[GrammarNazi some brave tropers among them]], who have taken up arms to fight back the [[SeriousBusiness scourge of illiteracy]].

Given that periods are not required in written Japanese, a lot of scanlations are prone to this. Or else! They will end every sentence the same way! Usually with an exclamation mark! Even when it makes no sense! And when it reduces the impact of sentences that actually had an exclamation mark in Japanese!

** Also with Classical Chinese, where punctuation is never used. This has led to a very fun type of exam question where the student is presented with a block of text and has to add the punctuation (made easier by the fact that Classical Chinese there are certain words that essentially serve as spoken punctuation, and it is written in a highly rhythmic and formalized style, finding the places to pause tend to come naturally after one reads the passages a few dozen times).
