That could lead to spam. A better system would be similar to the
out-of-date system that we currently have, with some changes. You press
the "report malicious package" button, submit a reason, and then a
messages gets automatically posted to the list. At the same time, it
also displays on the AUR page and flagged packages can be filtered in
the search the same way out-of-date packages can. The reporter would
also be mentioned in the list (to prevent people from anonymously
flagging packages without reason).
