For the love of Pete, when you use an ellipsis, SPACE THE DOTS! And there are only THREE of them. Not two, not four, not 20. Three.
If you use an ellipsis after a sentence, then there are four dots, but one of them is the period, so the rule still stands.
For example . . . those two words don't make a sentence, so there are only three spaced dots there. Ellipses really are easy to use. . . . Furthermore, you'll look more intelligent if you use them CORRECTLY.
