Over-Use of the Important Flag (!)

Since Friday afternoon I have received four e-mail messages flagged "Important" with the little red exclamation point by the sender. On the one hand, it's good to know that my email is indeed important and not an inconsequential, nihilistic blip. On the other hand, after a certain amount of time I'm sure an arms race will evolve, with TWO exclamation points for the truly important emails, then THREE, then FOUR with a little animated red flame background, then FIFTEEN ...

Sometimes all this importance just gets to me!
