An Open Letter to Autocorrectors

Dear Autocorrectors,

I know I use ellipses quite a bit. Not all the time, but quite a bit (it’s “cheap”, apparently, but hang with me.) And I know for a fact that three dots does not signify the end of a sentence, at least not unless I include another dot (ie, a period) after it. And yet, you keep treating ” … ” as the end of a sentence, and you capitalize the following word.

Stop! Just stop it. You’re wrong, okay?

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
