the sunset by the beachside! Bang!

I've noticed that DuckDuckGo is using Bang simply when you put an ! point in the search, and it's getting confusing. Sometimes you want to search for a sentence or a string of words that has an exclamation point.

For instance, I entered this search:

the sunset by the beachside!

Why does it take me to the LA Times?  Is it because of the ! exclamation point?

sunset by the beachside!

Then tried it this way, and was taken to Fan Fiction site.

beachside!

Takes me to Beachside Soccer.  

Please explain!
