I wonder if the OP is referring to the red badges you get that can't be removed when you get an iOS update alert to your phone, or for an app that you don't wish to apply the update to because you don't like the changes.
Those are the ones that bug the ish outta me indeed!! I currently have the stupid iOS notification red "1" yea yea I know there's an update I don't effin want it!! Lol.
Now if it's just for txs/emails/missed call ones - then no those ones don't bug me

Well the thing is, when I download an app, I don't like being asked constantly,
"Would you like to recieve notification badges?"
Some apps don't allow you to choose, but then, when the notification badges come, there's no way to awknowledge that you've seen them. You go inside the app and say:
(How do you turn the notification off?)
And then you come out of the app, and the same red badge with the 4 is still there. Leaving you wondering why they're there and why it isn't obvious. And why they can't be turned off.
So, Settings.app is the solution to this, but only after it happens to you. Because you don't want to automatically disable every one, you still hold out hope for the ones that are used in the correct manner.
So yes, they annoy me. But only when they are used inproperly. I don't mind seeing an app with a badge that says 367, (I have seen that before) as long as I can clear it out once I get into it.

If jail broken, there are a number of tweaks available to let you turn off badges by putting an app or folder into jiggly mode, and to turn off AppStore badges, and to turn off iOS update badges. Those were the ones that most bothered me.

I just wish that when you installed a new app, it would toggle all notifications on or off, not just push. I automatically say no to pretty much every new app's notification prompt when I start it up for the first time, but often they'll still have the tomato splats (badges), or lock screen, or any of the other ones.

In the IOS 5 forum I had posed that question and more people than not adviced me to do the update because it was stable so I did yesterday. It took a whole 15 mins. if that and I am glad I did because my OS seems stable so far and now I am charging my battery since I just got home to 100% and keeping an eye on it although yesterday I did alot and the battery meter did not move as much as usual, it seems when I am on wifi at home or work is when it really goes down, just thought I would throw that in...Sorry for the long answer.

They bug me and I'll do whatever updates necessary to clear them. Except of course the iOS 5.1.1 update. I'll leave it alone and clear it out once the untethered jailbreak is released. I'll live with that badge until that time comes.
