When I read a blog post or even a Facebook status where someone recklessly inflicts the visual obscenity of extraneous dots (where they are unwanted) onto the unsuspecting population of their readers, my eyes catch metaphorical fire.
It’s my moral obligation to stop this anti-grammatical movement possibly initiated by some entitled millennial editorial assistants. I am not discriminating against the entire millennial population of the United States and I have over 25 friends born after 1994 whom could be potential members of MENSA. These individuals are proficient in all things grammar-related including (but not limited to) the proper usage of ellipses, which I appreciate, per the first sentence of this electronic communication.
It’s crucial to reiterate the importance of these three dots. They asked me to write this and I cannot say no to them…
Below are my bio and a list of media outlets I’ve written for…(see how that satisfying that is?).
