it "makes sense" if employed correctly- the periods simulate dramatic pauses between words, often for comedic effect (in an informal setting).

Tho maybe you were using "MAKES. NO. SENSE." to really mean "I. DON'T. LIKE."

I hope this Topic isn't a sly attempt to impugn the acting style of Bill Shatner.

Informal setting, you say. I just saw it in the Washington Post--ON THE FRONT PAGE--and, as you said, I did not like.

Professional writers use the period to denote the end of a sentence--period.

yes I've noticed the WashPo using more Twitter-friendly colloquialisms as they transition to a National Clickbait Brand under the aegis of creep Jeff Bezos.

Students say stuff like that when they're trying to get their grade raised.

Ever try to argue with a teacher?

Well one time the pinhed wrote that an event occurred over 40 years ago -- "40 s lishkom let tom nazad."

The prof said: the correct word is “s lishniem” not “s lishkom.” study

pinhed said: Pushkin said “s lishkom.” bounce

prof: What exactly did Pushkin say? Suspect

pinhed: “v Ugliche v soborye, pred vsyem narodom, pyat’ s lishkom dnei [at the cathedral in Ulich, before all the people for more than 5 days …]”

The prof harrumphed awhile and then finally:

prof: Well, it’s like this, pinhed. Pushkin can say that, but you can’t.

it's also a basic historical fact. it's why Italians don't speak Latin anymore.
