Response to Original message
58. I haven't viewed the videos
but I have to ask. Why the exclamation points? Using exclamation points to draw our attention to these videos seems very inappropriate to me. Exclamation points are typically used to indicate excitement , as in Wow!! That's great!, or to indicate danger, as in Watch out!!. Is there another use for exclamation points that I'm forgetting? I see this a lot on DU when people are posting things that I find very disturbing.
