RSS Feeds show every post - intended?

I'm not sure if you intended this as a feature of the new site, but EVERY post is showing up in the RSS feeds. The old site only included new posts in the feed, which for me is preferred. I don't want to see every single reply that someone posts to a topic.

    1. Is anyone looking into fixing this? Like the original poster, I'm finding it incredibly annoying.

      1. It's not intended, we're working on it.

          It has been almost two months, any progress? Or should I just unsubscribe to them for good.

          I go to my feeds and find 50- 75 under chowhound. Since I don't have time for that many, I hit the "mark all read" button. By the time I finish reading my feeds, I'm on to something else so I've been AWOL on the boards lately.

            Over two months, and still "working on it", it seems.

            Or have you guys just given up?

              It's not a question of giving up, but of priorities. There are lots of little things on The Mighty List of things to do. This is still definitely one of the items to be addressed, and once they get some big development tasks done--especially Search--Engineering is planning to spend some time concentrating on knocking down some of the smaller issues.

              I can't guarantee that this particular problem will be addressed right away, but it will be addressed eventually.

              Yes, please tell us when this will be fixed. I posted with the same question and no one replied. I've stopped reading the feeds completely now ... there's only so many times you want to look at an "I agree" post before you just give up. Chowhound has incredible content but I don't have time to visit everyday ... please fix the feeds! Or at least offer a choice in feeds ... one for just the topics and another for all posts?

            3. I'm still finding 50 or more entries each time I go to read feeds. Just to let you know.

              1. Any hope of having this problem fixed?
