i hate exclamation points ...

more than dangling modifiers.
which is to say, i hate them a lot.

how could anyone ever defend their use?

they bother me a little when used in casual correspondence, but i absolutely hate it when i see it in work e-mails. it's usually the doing of some over-enthusiastic company flak. "Thanks so much for your interest!" "We're so excited to see the story!!" "I just ate a delicious burrito!!!!" YAYAYAYAYYAYAYAYAY.

hopefully you've seen the episode of seinfeld where this issue is addressed. if not, i strongly recommend you hunt for it.
