I'm using Google Reader, there is a function that allows us to mark all as read which is really good, but

I was wondering is there anyway to Mark the RSS as read automatically when they come in?

I'm not sure I get the point of marking a feed read automatically. Why have it, then? That said, if you're using the default view, there is a setting for automarking read any item as you scroll past it. If that's not sufficient then, no, Google Reader doesn't currently allow you to automatically mark a feed as read as messages are pulled in. –  Al E. Sep 22 '11 at 13:10
    
@AlEverett well blogs like mashable give 50 items per day, so basically i usually only read the headings. –  Pacerier Sep 22 '11 at 15:35
    
That's why I have it in list mode. –  Al E. Sep 22 '11 at 21:38
    
@AlEverett I don't understand you, what do you mean ? –  Pacerier Sep 23 '11 at 8:24
    
I don't use the expanded view, just the list view, so that I can easily skim over the headings and select the items I want to read. –  Al E. Sep 23 '11 at 12:28

As already discussed in the comments, it is not possible. Google Reader doesn't currently allow you to automatically mark a feed as read as messages are pulled in.
