 Hi SGr33n

 Correct me if i'm wrong, but i think this is 2 separate things :
 - You have 1 notification in the "notification center" (WP Admin Bar) and
 as a result in the user's notification not read screen
 - You have an indication in the messages list that a message is not read.

 If you remove one of these two things, i think it's a bit embarassing. If
 you remove the screen notification, there can be users that set their
 email settings to not receive an email when a private message is sent.
 Then unless these users go into their private message inbox, they won't
 know a private message is not read.
 If you remove the indication, then going  into the inbox, it's hard to
 figure out what message is not read.

 So IMO, we should keep both.
