I really hate ellipsis

No seriously do you know how annoying it is to see them everywhere, even THIS SITE HAS IT RIGHT THERE, RIGHT ABOVE THIS TEXTBOX. And do you know how in-confident it makes you sound? it literally makes you sound like an awkward teenager wondering if her senior crush really did look in her direction. I get that people use 'em for pauses or something but isn't that what periods are for? or comas or hyphens or semi colons are for? I know I don't know much about grammar but I'm pretty sure that that's not how those three little dots work. Plus if your actually trying to sound confident you don't use them. What if your trying to give sound advice to someone and then you just put a whole bunch of ellipsis at the end of your sentience, that's no good cause then you sound like your doubting yourself. or your one of those crazy people that trail off their sentences and get a really distant look in your eye. So seriously internet its annoying stop.

just stahp.

  • I'll use my ellipses as often as I please for they are used correctly, as part of a writing style. Learn how to at least capitalize your sentences, you sound like an ignorant fool who never passed the fourth grade. Blathering on about the stupidity of the internet... It's you and your kind.

  • It's an element of style, left to the discretion of the writer. As a reader, you're permitted to overlook them, or to think poorly of the writer, or to guess at what's been left out in the space, or to just shut the f*** up.

  • U want grammer or just point of their opinion.
    U wrote the spelling of sentence wrong too.
    Humans do make mistakes not machines.
    Lol
