I'm subscribed to a huge and frequently updated RSS feed in Google Reader.

This feed contains some interesting information, and a lot of noise.

I'm looking for a way to filter out noise (say, mark all entries, that match a certain set of regexps, as read).

I do not want to use another reader. (But I may change the feed -- proxy it through some filter for example.)

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

As I've mentioned in other responses, Yahoo Pipes may be a solution for you. And it sounds like your not averse to using some RegExps.

Feed sifter. Then subscribe to the filtered feed.

Welcome to Web Applications (part of the Stack Exchange network). Can you provide more information on how your solution will solve the problem. – ChrisF Jan 24 '11 at 13:58

Here is a Greasemonkey script for that (haven't tried that myself). Personally I just use searching (:
