[Snort-sigs] Missing SID information on Snort site

Again... SID 21545 is also missing.   I found this link, which points to a disabled rule (which I have enabled).
What's the point of leaving rule in the rules file if the goal is to never use it? Correct me if I'm wrong but this appears to be the motivation behind the removal of the related information page.

Subject: [Snort-sigs] Missing SID information on Snort site

The following rule was triggered by Snort. The corresponding SID number is 20437. I did a search on the Snort website, no results were returned. This happens from time to time with other SIDs.   Does anyone know why the information is missing from the Snort website?
