USE OF EXCLAMATION MARK II
Do not overuse exclamation marks because they will introduce an almost hysterical tone, or they will deaden the emphasis of a sentence or sentences:
We felt that the freshmen were craving for help, and we, the seniors, came to rescue!!! What was wrong with that? We never wanted to isolate the sophomores, but some of them triggered it all!!! It was a conspiracy!!! No. It was not!!! It was simply a synecdoche!!! We never intended to hurt the sophomores as a whole. We only wanted to deal with some.
