Don't do it that way..  suppress is really intended to fix one or two rules..

Instead, set EXTERNAL_NET to be !$HOME_NET.. this will take care of the 
majority of them.

The few remaining rules you can use suppress, or you can take things to an 
extreeme and use a bpf statement on the snort command line to prevent snort 
from seeing the packets at all. (the bp filter format is the same one used 
by the tcpdump command line)

The list of AOL instant messenger servers for the AIM detection rules.
