I'm getting the rule does not exist when I lookup a preprocessor rule 119-31 ( unknown_method).  I looked in the latest set of rules I downloaded yesterday and it's there. Is the rule valid or should I suppress it???

Hi Leo,
     For your question, you can filter or suppress it using the threshold.conf file.  

You maybe also be able to disable it using pulledpork's disablesid.conf but I haven't tried that yet.
