A series of dots (not literally full stops, but using the same symbol) is called an ellipsis (which is usually three dots) and signifies an uncompleted sentence (particularly when reporting speech verbatim). When communicating by written text, it's best to simply complete the sentence rather than make people guess what it might say!

If you've read my Newbies' Guide, and sampled a number of posts on this forum, you'll know we use a formal literary style rather than trying to transcribe spoken word. Compare the few posts where the latter is attempted, and you'll soon see which is more readable and understandable.

I suspect there is a major generation gap here!

The ellipsis is … and a series of 3 dots is ... and there is a difference. The former is a single character, but the latter is three characters, as you will see if you try to move a cursor through them.

In a well designed font, they should look different, too.
