I am actually pretty surprised by the amount of bile and condescension that get thrown my way for merely pointing out the wrong use of grammar on the wiki. I have been neither impolite nor insulting, so I don't really see why I get treated like a half-illiterate idiot for pointing out that there is a tendency on this wiki for using ellipses in places where a comma would actually be appropriate.
For examples, I hit the random button a couple of times and this came up:
He wasn't exactly stranded or captured, but he was stuck...
This is pretty much So Yeah
The villages automatically assume that the boy is the saviour... but he gets killed, leading the girl to disguise herself as him and lead the rebellion.
Ellipses in place of a comma.
This time he catches her...and promptly slides into the pond with her, as he's not anchored to anything and she outmasses him.
Easily the most common. Not quite sure what it is supposed to mean, I guess it's for emphasis.
Also, while our trope description are written rather colloquially, they are neither direct speech and most certainly not a dialog. I see what you mean, but I simply disagree. We have several projects to improve the writing on this wiki and I think this is one of the issues.
And I am not going to start a wiki wide clean up action on my own, I don't really see why you would feel the need to point that out.
