I suppose that is some kind of a configuration helper. I'm talking
about the Snort configuration file. About the order how rules are
being worked through. Snort is not like Netfilter/Iptables, where
the action is taken when a rule is hit. Default rule order is:

   Activate -> Dynamic -> Alert -> Pass -> Log

which means that the pass rules miss their purpose, because some
people never look to the manual, write some pass rules and never
notice being hacked. ;)

Have fun,
