Don't know if anyone else has run into this little annoyance, but I have and I just found a solution. Thanks to Scott Granneman who posted it on his site a couple days ago, and Google for pointing me there.

Is your OS X Messages Beta showing a badge that won’t go away on its Dock icon?
Posted on March 25, 2012 by Scott Granneman
I’ve been using the Messages Beta since it came out & on the whole it’s pretty good stuff. Over the last couple of days, however, I’ve been experiencing an annoyance: the Messages icon on the Dock showed a badge with the number 1 in it. Nothing I did could get rid of that 1, except this:

  • Close Messages
  • Kill the Dock: in the Terminal, enter killall Dock, & press Return. Watch as the Dock disappears & reappears a moment later.
  • Restart Messages & the erroneous badge should be gone!

This has been a public service announcement for anyone else experiencing this little unpleasantry.
Five seconds and that annoying as hell little 3 that's been there for days and rebuffed attempts to remove it is gone.

Perhaps not but a TOZT.25 flame thrower works wonders.

Indeed, but Frost is not allowed to use them after the accident in '03.

That would've been tBCs infamous Harvard Panty Raid, recently mentioned in another thread. That explains the fire department appearing at the one sorority house.

I was unclear on the concept of "panty raid" OK?  I didn't realize it was for collection purposes, I thought it was for sterilization of biological infestations.

I was clear. I just didn't care! Mmm, delicious NAPALM!
