Don't know if anyone else has experienced this but I get this semi often and I've no idea how I get rid of it - I just mash at the keyboard.
If I get a follow request, even when I accept the follow (and it says accepted) I still have 2 notifications for it.
HOW CAN I GET RID OF IT? This one is especially long, been there a day now and it's driving me nuts.

I think I know what you mean: you get one where the notifications for new opinions appear, and one where the notifications for messages appear.
Try to push the little "bell" almost top right, and see if they disappear.
The settings for what things we want to receive notifications are on our settings page I think. But switching off the box for follow requests may not solve the matter since than you won't know someone sent a request :o0

Click on your notifications to open up that screen. At the top right-hand side, there's an option to "Mark All As Read." Choose that, and your notifications should be cleared. :)1
