You want to go in the innfeeds file and mark the group as unwanted. 
Storing it in the junk group won't help. You could also mark it as 'x' 
instead of 'j', but what you really want is "" in either the 
feed for your whole site to rejct at the door, or in the feed for the 
site which doesn't want the articles.
