This would be about 480000+ e-mails to users if your bot continues
writing those AUR comments. That's too many.

As I said before, please, don't do this. You can, of course, let such a
bot help you finding "bad" packages. But you have to verify its results
personally, before you write such AUR comments.

Such automations are usually pretty unreliable except they are written
very thoughtfully and are tested a lot.

And regarding the 1.2%... Don't trust any statistics you did not even
