Every time I see the "Have you considered accepting an answer or starting a bounty for this question?" message it makes me feel guilty, which I don't think I am for simply asking an open-ended question. I want a button like "Yeah, shut up already!" or something...

It goes away in time. And if you have a good reason for not accepting any of the existing answer and don't feel a pressing need to get a better one, then don't worry about it. –  dmckee May 21 '10 at 11:32

What @dmckee says. It needs to be that prominent because some people simply don't realize that they can accept answers. Everyone else, just ignore it. –  Pëkka May 21 '10 at 11:36

I'd like to see a link, as open-ended questions are frowned upon in SO. –  perbert May 21 '10 at 11:44

While you’re right about some questions, you could accept answers on some other questions, e.g. on Python: sort a part of a list, in place.

I could if there were one. So far, there is no single answer on how do do that, and no definite "that's impossible" one, either. –  Headcrab May 21 '10 at 12:39

I'd like the ability to dismiss this message, like you can with the notification bar that appears on the top of the page.
