I see big red ball blinking beside notifications button....and I see people quote me in those topics.....
I think it is useless...I don't even know how to disable each notification, I mean delete it from the list....
i click on it, visit it and then it is still there.....what do notifications exactly do....they are not pm

Click the link.
Click 'settings' at the top right
Turn off what you don't want.
Next time you visit they won't be there.

For most of us it's very useful. In your case you don't think it is, so you can turn it all off if you don't want it. Most of the items on that list have been added because of numerous calls to add in such things.
