Much thanks; I had no idea the true definition, as opposed to what I was actually talking about, which was what people often use them for. People often use ellipses either on their own, or after a sentence to show they either don't understand, or would like whoever they are quoting to elaborate. I was under the impression you were using four dots, as opposed to three, to signify the above. People often times don't choose to utilize their knowledge of grammar on forums such as these, so I thought it was a fair assumption. But again, thanks for letting me in on the dictionary definition.
