An ellipsis tease is what occurs while you're chatting with someone on IRC, or AIM, or ICQ, and they put an ellipsis (...) at the end of their sentence, but then fail to follow it up with any added commentary, which the ellipsis led you to believe was coming. As a result, you're just left there wondering if they're going to complete their thought.

Not to be confused with simple overuse of the precious ellipsis, which can create a William Shatner type effect, and can be equally annoying.
