Take a chill pill. No one implied that this is for TUs or devs. Users
subscribed to aur-general may take interest in them too.
If I orphan a package I'll usually leave a comment, so that
people that get notifications will know that they can adopt.

I'm not really sure where you're gathering your rules from.
If excess traffic on the list does become a problem, we'll find ways to
solve it.
