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.
Takes me to Beachside Soccer.
