Make the New blog message disappear after reading it
A new blog post has been added today, and the "new" tag is driving me crazy. I'm so used to the scheme "red thingy on top of SO - your attention is needed!" that I just can't look away.
It has already been asked when it will go away on its own, see this meta question. What I'd like to know however is: how can I make it disappear right now?
If I can't make it go away - can you please implement means to make it go away?
It's just itching me so much I feel I can't visit SO until I got rid of it. I even considered sticking a piece of a post-it on the screen to cover it up.
