pandas read csv with extra commas in column

Imagine we’re reading your dataframe called comma.csv:

userid, username, body
01, n1, 'string1, string2'

One thing you can do is to specify the delimiter of the strings in the column with:

df = pd.read_csv('comma.csv', quotechar="'")

In this case strings delimited by ' are considered as total, no matter commas inside them.
