Attention Joe and snort rule writers. I have read a fair amount of information on writing rules, but now I am stuck on how to to this.

How could I detect on the following scenario? - Alert on any packet that contains ANYTHING OTHER THAN "message1", "message2" or "message3", in a certain field.

Obviously I could use offset and depth to narrow down to the field I'm looking at, but now to a do a "negative search". Ideas?

Side Note: I'm pretty sure whatever Joe Esler gets paid isn't nearly enough. I love the blogs too, Joe.
