Do you really need an exclamation point at the end of every post title on the home page?

OMG a new review has been posted!

Yes I do!

I guess it's just my enthusiasm when posting a new review that's taken weeks to create...

I agree, I suppose you do feel quite happy. Besides, in my opinion, it's more inviting to read it when it has an exclamation mark :)

I used to read Donald Duck comics and just about every sentence (in the Dutch edition anyway) ends with an exclamation point. Don't even notice them anymore! :wink:

An exclamation point, I feel, is relative to the person who uses it. To me, it's like crying wolf: You use it too often, people who know you will disregard it.

talking about getting excited about a review, any hints on the timing of a Canon 6D review?!

Canon isn't being very forthcoming with a review sample right now.
