[Shorewall-users] ICMP

I was just running 'shorewall monitor'  and found the following:

Standard Chains

Chain INPUT (policy DROP 0 packets, 0 bytes)
 pkts bytes target     prot opt in     out  source   destination
    0     0 ACCEPT     all  --  lo     *
    0     0 DROP      !icmp --  *      * state INVALID

What does this mean, where it says !icmp state INVALID??

Intuition, however illogical, is recognized as a command prerogative.
