frindley commented on the word abridged ellipsis
A curious form of punctuation – neither a period nor an ellipsis, but comprising two dots thus..
Conveys uncertainty, carelessness and confusion as well as irritating the life out of any editor within email range..

You're right, frindley--it truly did irritate me. ;-)
. . . . . . . . <-- extra periods/ellipses parts, for anyone who may need them
Oh, c_b is correct--the online version of the OED is crawling with abridged ellipses. What is that??
