Suspend a feed without removing

I would like to be able to suspend a specific RSS feed (i.e. not get new posts) but not remove it from my list of feeds so that I can reactivate it at a later time.

        Yes!! This is EXACTLY what I want, as well.

        Sometimes I lose interest temporarily in a topic, or the feed may be temporarily cluttered with posts I don't care about, etc., etc… But I've categorized and organized my feeds carefully. So, if I remove a feed completely, it's tedious to find, re-add, and recategorize it again.

        I hate it when a really useful idea has so few votes. The average user doesn't necessarily think of these kinds of features… :-/

        I would use this. Here's one story for how I'd use it.
        subscribe to a feed.
        realize I don't care about the feed for whatever reason
        move feed to 'suspended' state
        [time passes]
        attempt to subscribe to same feed
        system finds it in 'suspended' state
        system notifies me that I already subscribe and have it 'suspended'
        I would then realize I don't want that feed back.

        All too often, I find that some site posts something interested, gets linked elsewhere, I follow in from the link, subscribe, figure out that 95% of the time I don't care about the new site and unsubscribe... and then six months later it happens again. Make it stop!
