    There is no way to do that without an add-on or possibly editing the server files.

    A few people have removed the rss icon but of course it doesn't disable the feed.

    okay Brogan, thanks Jake.
    Hopefully we'll see this option in future XF updates.

    I should just add that the RSS feed is governed by the respective node permissions, so only those who have permission to view the node can receive it.

    it would be great to limit rss to a whitelist (ie twitterfeed-like services) rather than opening the entire board to harvesters for no good reason.
    i suppose this could be done using htaccess...
