The issue was with the user, not the web site. I had been clicking on the blue circle and was being take to the page that will only tell you how many notifications or messages you have. For anyone else having this problem, roll over the blue circle and a list of messages will appear. Click on the message, not the blue circle, and you will be taken to the message. The blue indicator will extinguish.
