Well I don't think it's worthy to answer here (after reading your update) but I think I can teach you.
On the Internet, the thing you're disrespecting by calling it 'bell', it's the universal sign of 'notification'. Hover your mouse over it to check out the notifications. It actually reduced your one step. Now you can redirect to the topic in a single click. If you are not interested then there is a checkmark too to get rid of unwanted notification.

In general I like the latest modifications. One thing that I don't really understand is the "notification" which seem to be double info. It's the sum of new opinions & comments but the old system provided the same info with less bling bling on your screen. Perhaps it's important for smart phone users, no idea. To me it's no added value though no issue either :-)
