Don't capitalise after ellipses, especially when it only indicates a pause in a sentence. Flows much better.
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

YOU FORGOT A PERIOD AT THE END

YOUR POINT IS MOOT
To consider the Earth as the only populated world in infinite space is as absurd as to assert that in an entire field of millet, only one grain will grow. - Metrodorus of Chios
I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

Four years later...

Yup, after the last couple of months I've spent performing a mass editing of all of Exile's text, I can hereby not only say truthfully, but can also offer a sworn testimonial to the effect that Nyctaeus really...really...REALLY...LOVES...ELLIPSES....

But italics and ALL CAPS are more my thing. To each their own. :drevil: :lol: :p :D
