IMHO, absolutely not...

if you are getting oversize reports like that, you can increase the size of your 
oversize_dir_length setting in the http_inspect preprocessor section of your 
snort.conf file... we use 750 here but you may need a larger or smaller value 
depending on the traffic on your network...
