I'm working on some new scripts and I'm not sure if I should use pool.use or pool.select. In the TrafficScript guide it says that if you use pool.use it will stop processing any other rules. Does that mean that if I use this option traffic will not be checked against my Zeus AFM Enforcer request rule?

You're correct about the distinction between pool.use and pool.select.
If you call 'pool.use' in a request rule that runs before your enforcer rule, then the enforcer rule will not be run.
This is a useful technique if you have a pool of servers for static content (images, css, etc) and you don't want to run the Application Firewall rules against requests to that pool. You can pool.use() to divert those requests immediately, and bypass the Enforcer rule
