Do you have third-party cookies blocked? Have you cleared your cache? – Eight Days of Malaise Aug 19 '11 at 1:38
Nope. And yes. It works for some items, it doesn't work for others – InquilineKea Aug 19 '11 at 15:17

The exclamation mark means most likely the site was unavailable at one point in time.

If the +1 button is unavailable or has stopped working, you'll see this image: enter image description here

A +1 button error can occur for a variety of reasons, including the following:

  • Server timeout: Check your Internet connection and try refreshing the page.
  • Suspended profile: If your profile has been suspended, you won't be able to +1 content.
  • Apps user: If your administrator hasn't enabled Google+ for your domain, you won't be able to sign up for a Google+ account to use the +1 button.
  • Blocked cookies: If you've disabled 3rd party cookies in your browser you won't be able to use the +1 button.

From the +1 button errors page.
