Search engines Bing and Yahoo shows links like feed.rss

Can anyone tell me why search engines Bing and Yahoo (now they are joined) have my forum http://www.planamigo.org all categories indexed with feed.rss on the link?
If you do search on Yahoo or Bing by phrase "plan amigo openbank" or "plan amigo ing direct"
On search result link appears with feed.rss on the end like:

www. planamigo. org / categories / Openbank / feed.rss
and
www. planamigo. org / categories / ing-direct / feed.rss

If you make click on the link opens as XML on you browser.

Is a bug in the code or configuration ?
Maybe I need to put on my robots.txt dont index feed.rss ?
Google doesn't have this issue.

Thanks

    You could of course put a noindex on those pages.

    When I click on an RSS link, my browser automatically parses it and presents me with an opportunity to subscribe to the feed.

    Search first

    I believed you. I was merely reporting that some browsers find use of the RSS link.

    The trouble is that the search engine shows RSS rather than a link to category or gives preference to RSS
    Besides the users who use chrome or opera 100% will reject the xml page.

    I think I have to find the solution to put to noindex these pages in robots file.
