VRT subscriptions != Snort, but since Snort (the Open Source) project 
gets funding from Sourcefire (I hear about this one all the time from 
Sourcefire folks) perhaps you're telling me you'd rather not deal with 
my justified ramblings here and would prefer I take my $15,000+/yr VRT 
subscription monies elsewhere?  I'm not using it as a dangling carrot 
here, I'm actually serious.  A serious evilghost is pretty dangerous.

Let me not leave you empty handed though, so here's some cautionary 
advice before you fire out an E-mail; next time it's a heavy-flow day 
for you and you're out of panty liners you might want to just not hit 

If you can't deal with the justified ramblings of an Enterprise user in 
stride and are too incompetent to separate Snort (the Open Source) 
engine with Sourcefire's VRT release then there's not much I can do for you.

Hey, but who am I to comment about the quality of the VRT releases?  At 
least next year you'll be able to understand where the $15K funding 
deficit came from.  In that space where the number is printed in red, do 
me a favor and write 'evilghost' next to it.

No, evilghost.  Close though.  Evilghost doesn't do personal attacks, 
just witty well structured insults.  You're no evilghost, Johnny Ringo.

PS - Hey Jeff, I would be willing to take a look at the Snort manual if 
you'd let me and correct some errors.  No hard feelings.
