oooooh a spy bot.  WOW!!!  You could write your own spy bot in some
super leet language like TCL or something.  Mad leet yo.

Then you too can *STOP* those *EVIL* hackers!!!!

Am I the only person that is tired of hearing about how Steve Gibson
is the greatest anti-hacker in the world? 

alert tcp any any -> any 6667 (msg:"Evil HACKERS!!! stop the evil
alert udp any any -> any 666 (msg:"We are under *ATTACK* by UDP
alert icmp any any -> any any (msg:"DoS!!!  DoS!!!  We are under
attack by DoS!!!";)


.ps This is personal opinion only.  I'm talking on the behalf of
myself and myself only.
