There is nothing more frustrating than trying to help someone with a
problem, and then realizing you spent your time debugging a
typo made when "obfuscating" IP addresses.
Also, when these addresses are obfuscated, often they are NOT done
in a consistent manner. This makes the config files
impossible to read.
it is ALWAYS easiest to track down a problem from the actual
ruleset used. Unless you have a good reason to change something,
