you have obviously missed my earlier reply stating that yes, all distributed 
rules are 'alert' rules and that you need to configure pulledpork to change them 
to drop rules... if pulledpork is as much like oinkmaster as i think it may be, 
then there should be a mechanism where you tell it to modifysid the rules you 
want changed to 'drop' rules...
