I agree, this was a necessary change. If DDG ever hopes to expand it's reach to encompass the vast majority of users, they need to simplify things such as this.
!Bang is DDG; Bang! is English.
For me, I don't ever query with an Exclamation mark as it only narrows the results, typically. Grandma, however, would not think like this. I think this is the point that so many people have overlooked (It's not a change for us geeks.. We can simply adapt, if we even used the improper syntax to begin with that is. This is a change for Joe Average internet user that accidentally triggers false-positive !Bangs that he wasn't even aware existed).
