How does the procrastination count strategy work?

As soon as you schedule a task to a day, that first schedule date gets noted. 

When the procrastination count strategy is on it will always calculate how many days ago this "first schedule" date and add an exclamation mark for each day to the front of the task title. 

The exclamation marks are orange at first and after 3 days turn red.

Is there a way to remove the exclamation marks?

The only way to get rid of the ugly marks is to complete the task. Even unscheduling with keep counting up the marks. 

How can I see how many exclamation marks a task has?

Hover over the marks to see the number of days this tasks has been delayed.
