I don't remember the original post exactly, but judging from the subject
I would say the following variable is what you want.  It is documented
under the rss section of the gnus info manual.

,----[ C-h v nnrss-ignore-article-fields RET ]
| nnrss-ignore-article-fields is a variable defined in `nnrss.el'.
| Its value is (slash:comments)
| 
| 
| Documentation:
| *List of fields that should be ignored when comparing RSS articles.
| Some RSS feeds update article fields during their lives, e.g. to
| indicate the number of comments or the number of times the
| articles have been seen.  However, if there is a difference
| between the local article and the distant one, the latter is
| considered to be new.  To avoid this and discard some fields, set
| this variable to the list of fields to be ignored.
| 
| This is a Gnus server variable.  See Info node `(gnus)Select Methods'.

`----

You might want to search for more information on this variable.  It has
been discussed before, here I believe.
