WTF is this thing: ※?!

I've noticed manga-ka use this symbol: ※ as a bullet point for exceptions... or something like that. Footnotes?

Anyone know what it's called?

Edit: Ah! An answer from Melissa:
"It’s called a こめじるし (rice mark, I guess it looks like grains of rice) and it gets used pretty much the same way we use an asterisk. Like, it usually denotes a footnote-type remark."
