[Bro] - Skip Weird or ProtocolViolation analyzer

I don’t think weird can cleanly be disabled. Is there a particular reason that you’re trying this hard to optimize? Even if you could turn off weird, it would be a bad idea to do so. That’s where a lot of the good troubleshooting data comes from for Bro. It can be a great way to find problems with your Bro deployment and your environment.

Hi all,
I am trying to save bro unnecessary events, weird is has quit a few hits that are not relevant to me.
I see that under HTTP.cc or DNS.cc I have some redirection to WEIRD or ProtocolViolation analyzers.
How can I delete the connection at this stage instead of sending it to another costly analyzer ?
can I just comment it out ?
Thank you,
