An ellipse does not provide substance, only conjecture. Your ellipses are getting longer, like your nose.

Your termination of your post with an ellipse demonstrates your lack of assesment capabilities by leaving your post open-ended and subject to the reader's interpretation.

Guess who owns our TV stations? Yes, Disney, GE, Viacom. Huge corporations who are happy to feed the unwary "reality" shows and other crap instead of paying writers to write good drama, suspense, and comedy. Thank goodness for the BBC, CBC, and PBS.

it would seem that network and cable television is a communist plot. People that watch that crap all talk the same, think the same and buy the same crap that their junkies push on them...

Go to Gay.com and you can watch the first episode before the season. All this "freak-out" from OMM, and some stained dipstick is making the show popular before it's airing. How ironic. Now, all you OMM's go chow down on some chicken sandwiches/waffle fries.

This is where we're heading and one does not need religion or a God to point this out. These people are sexually insane and the govt is now involved in child trafficking to same sex couples. The same couples that dishonored their own body and parents with no intentions of procreating. They are destroying the future.

An ellipse invites the reader to add his/her thoughts to what has been stated, based on life experiences in the same vein; to formulate his/her own opinions and join in the conversation.

Something wrong with a writer inviting someone else to contribute to the thought process? The best conversations are those that are shared, and built upon.

Like dancing, good improv, or sex...

You are correct in the meaning and significance of an ellipse, however, in a forum, the "inviting someone else to contribute" is generally understood to be the function of the "REPLY" button.
An ellipse could also have non-standard usage, such as-

I have lost my train of thought....
I'm having difficulty expressing myself....
I'm trying to be dramatic....
I'm gay, with a flourish....
Do you see the hidden meaning?....
Are you intelligent enough to understand me....
I intentionally conflate the issues....
I want to be non-committal....
etc....

Occasional use of the ellipse is fine, however the poster who terminates every post with an ellipse is mentally disturbed, like the posters who-

USE ALL CAPS.
Abuse the exclamation point!!!!!!!!!!
Construct
their
sentence
vertically
Terminate each post with: [email protected]
Overuse the word "Queer", which lessens it's impact.

In script dialog, an elipse is also used as a beat counter.

Then, lease explain the direct scientific correlation between breast cancer and being only attracted to women.
