[Snort-users] Why so many default disabled rules?

I am curious as to why the Snort rules ship with so many of them disabled/commented out by default.

It seems the default set is ~4,000. But if using the option to enable /all/ rules in Oinkmaster it comes out with ~20,000. I get Registered User Release rules, not the Subscriber Release rules.
