When did the custom of using a full stop to show respect when someone has died originate and where?

This Twitter user asked about it earlier and it sparked my interest. This recent MeFi thread is an example.

Best answer: I think the wiki explains it pretty well.

As for the Tweet, "Old internet people..."? How about long time internet people. I ain't that old!

I pronounce it 'period of mourning'.
