I've seen a couple of users have their notifications stack up to like 40+ unread alerts. If you don't want to use the feature then I would really appreciate it if you could just click here and untick all of them. That way you won't get any alerts. Letting them stack up and having you still receive notifications is just unnecessary resource usage. Also, if you are a constant notifications user like myself and others, then if you see them piling up then you could do us a favour and delete them once in a while. You can do that by clicking User CP and then on the left hand side clicking "Delete Old Alerts". Thanks.
