How much salt is too much salt?

I've noticed recently that when I see Food Network chefs seasoning their food, they routinely use an amount of salt that looks really extreme to me--every millimeter of a dish covered. I know that salting is a matter of personal taste, but the dishes they prepare would turn me into a raisin in no time. Have others noticed this, or am I being salt-phobic? (For the record, I do not consciously avoid salt for health reasons or anything.) And if it's not just me, what are these guys up to?
