End a Sentence with a Period. Period.

I see this in emails or social media posts……….people connect sentences with long strings of dots……..it’s not a period and not an ellipsis……….this punctuation has no meaning………an ellipsis (three periods …) is used to indicate that something is being omitted from text, usually when quoting……….a period is used to indicate the end of a sentence……….I wonder if they do this when writing on paper……….probably not because they would need to make many dots with a pen…………when you get to the end of a complete thought……….please insert a period………this signals to your reader that the sentence is over………now if you want to use these dot strings in personal emails……..you certainly can but it’s not appropriate………………for business correspondence or professional social media.
