It's not from a rule.  It's from the snort_decoder.  Check the comments
inside of snort.conf that come after these lines:

  # Configure the snort decoder:

I don't think you're setup right with those variables.  I'm guessing that
the network you want to watch is 210.xx.xx.xx.  If so, you might consider
changing that to:

	var HOME_NET 210.xx.xx.xx

I think that would make the rules fire in a more sane manner.
