Hi, all. This is directed toward the Mentors, but I'm posting it here rather than dealing with it behind the scenes in case it impacts upon someone else's experience. I recently received a request for friendship from someone. I declined (and those of you who are my friends know why), with an explanation and an invitation to communicate through PM's until I become comfortable enough with him to accept the friendship. This has never been a point of difficulty in the past. Now, though, I can't seem to rid myself of the "Your Notifications: 1" blurb on the top of my screen. So... two questions. Did he or did he not receive my response, and if not can it be relayed to him? Secondly, how the hell do I get rid of that flag at the top of my screen? It is irritating to a degree that publicly allowable language can't begin to express.
