Cisco ASA ACL rules

I think I know the answer to this question but is there any reason whatsoever to have an allow any any ip statement on the outside interface? I am taking over some firewalls from a previous tech and my first instinct is to remove every instance of that rule in any ASA I find it in but I wanted to quadruple check that with the rest of you guys.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

ALLOW IP ANY ANY is an open invite to find yourself out of a job. Identify what traffic needs to traverse that firewall and restrict it to just that.
