I don't mean this to be offensive, but when you use the 3 dots instead of one to end a sentence, grammatically, it makes you sound annoyed, or upset with a person. I know you don't mean to come off this way, but thought I'd point it out for a fellow man. Best regards, love the blog.

I appreciate your concern. It’s called Ellipsis.
Ellipsis is a series of three dots that usually indicate an intentional omission of a word, sentence or whole section from the original text being quoted, and though necessary for syntactical construction, is not necessary for comprehension. Ellipses can also be used to indicate an unfinished thought or, at the end of a sentence, a trailing off into silence (aposiopesis). That is my intention…

being a user of ellipsis, thank you for this explanation!
