I could not agree more!!! (Oops.) My 12 year-old daughter uses more exclamation marks than letters in most of her emails.

In business writing, I see over-punctuation as akin to ALL CAPS. It's overkill and annoying. (And yet, I have been guilty of this sin, myself, so thanks for the reminder, Lynn.)
