I spend a good portion of time online (more than I'm going to admit).  One thing that I have noticed is the excessive use of exclamation marks!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It almost feels like they've lost some of their pizzazz from excessive use.

going beyond the usual, necessary, or proper limit or degree;characterized by excess 

I know it is just a simple punctuation mark but I feel like it has been over used.  I mean we don't seem to give it any respect.  Now, I am by no means a punctuation expert but I do remember learning that you really shouldn't use more than one at a time.  I will be the first to say that I break this rule all the time but I try to only use it when I need to but I do use it when appropriate.

I get that people are trying to say, "look at me, look at me!" but geez, let's give the exclamation point a little love.
