Exclude node from What's New/Mark RSS as read


Active member
I've got a couple of RSS feeds running on a forum, but they are heavily cluttering the What's New page. Is there any way of preventing a node from populating the What's New page, or the RSS feed threads being posted as read?
Is there any progress on this field?

I also have one RSS newsfeed on forum and I must turn off notification about new and recent post from that node (where is rss newsfeed) from Sidebar!?
This is beautiful. Especially when you have RSS feeds that post a ton, spamming the place. Now members won't get their notifications and will actually see the stuff they believe is more important.
