Very thankful for this discussion. Provided a much greater understanding of many things and overall.
For those reading: As to this specific issue, one that I saw many posts about, but this solution I have not seen:
Just found this under logs-->firewall-->settings. I tested it and worked for the noise. Just don't know if will be losing any other and important logging with it. Looking at default block rules I do not think so, but not sure.
