I made a custom ruleset called Noise Reduction.  I put all my false 
positive rules in there and changed alert to pass.

I use the "-o" option to reverse the evaluation order that snort uses to 
test traffic.

With -o, "pass" rules are evaluated before "alert and log".

My rules can update all day and life goes on.  It seems to work for me.
