well, actually you are not sending a bang, but sending a null-list:
when you click on "bang" (the black circle), it will trigger the 
the body of the send-message (everything after the "send" keyword) is 
this is transmitted with netsend (probably it isn't since it is too small)

i guess, pd *should* handle null-lists (empty lists; lists with 0 
arguments) as bangs, but the buhaviour concerning this is not fixed (at 
least i think so)

anyhow, you should transmit some data. you could use [send bang( to 
transmit a bang via netsend/netreceive.
you could use anything else, like [send foobar(, which will result in 
[netreceive] outletting "foobar", which you can use to trigger something 
else (with [route])
