Because if the AUR, and the forums, don't allow it, then it is better to
use the mailing list run by the same organization... because why?

This seems like questionable logic.

That being said, we have bittorrent clients available in the offical
repos and the AUR, and e.g. qbittorrent (in [community]) comes with a
builtin search indexer that searches thepiratebay among several other sites.
