There is significance to it, but it’s not a solution I would ever recommend unless you have to override styles that are provided by a third party. In my opinion, !important is generally a band-aid for a boo-boo that resides somewhere else in your code. Instead of patching the bug, it’s better to completely remove it.

You didn’t anger anyone, not me at least. No worries, we’re all here to learn!
