What are the risks of posting a firewall config to this site?

I have always munged my configs before posting a question.  Do I need to do this?

    Assisted Solution

    It depends on how much you trust your firewall and your configs. Since you're likely posting in the context of something you don't understand or think is not quite right, the implication is that you shouldn't fully trust them and therefore shouldn't post them unmangled.
