This rule is disabled by default in the current snortrules-stable.tar.gz on
snort.org. Maybe you should update your rule set? I would look very closely
at the porn rules and see if they make sense, the there are a few rules in
there that match on a single word that will generate a lot of false
positives (These are disabled in the the rule set on snort.org)
