The PMs I've had in the past 3-4 days haven't caused the white PM sign to light up. It's only by checking the inbox that I can see the mail.
Periodically, SO clears out all the site PMs and I suspect we're approaching that moment again. It has a similar effect to clearing cache and cookies
on your web browser. People should consider saving any special PMs to a Word doc or something. I'm only speculating here and not setting a time or a
date. Either way, I'll begin to save the PMs I value.
