I think these postings make sense. Maybe in particular if more details
are shown, as one can already get from the graphs on the site.

Maybe as a suggested (but not mandatory) procedure if you see a surge in

- check the port report pages to see if its just you or if everybody
  is seeing this.

- try to capture some full packets or other details (depending on skill
  and equipment)

- summarize what you find in your post.

In short: don't just fire off a quick question, but show that you did
some work first.

I agree that we should try to avoid posting yet another Nimda signature.
But if you see a variation, let us know. And explain why you think it is
a variation (e.g., don't just ask 'is this different', but ask 'is this new?
I compared it to the standard signature found at ...')
