ez iptables question

Hi,

I would like to know why Oskar Andreasson log the bad_tcp_packets chain in
the begining of the FORWARD chain,
INPUT chain, and OUTPUT chain.  I seems whenever we want to connect to the
internet or the mail server from our client, all we get in the linux box are
"New not syn: ...", same thing happend to the incoming mail packets.
What would happen if we simply log the bad tcp packets after the FORWARD
chain, INPUT chain, and OUTPUT chain?  Does is mean the firewall useless if
we simply change ther orders?
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
