Allow disabling of unread count on dashboards and feeds.
It would be nice to remove these unread counts to speed up content delivery and clean up the interface. Some people are not remotely interested in this information.
Yes it's annoying and I don't want to mark everything as read simply to get rid of it. Besides I don't need to know I have 1048 unread items on my dashboard. It's silly
