[aur-general] Mandatory comment along with OOD-flag

good day!

recently i experienced some wild out-of-date flagging without any
comments or even backupped reasons for codelite [1] from different
users (even multiple times by the same) over the past two weeks.
someone has been kind enough to help me unflagging these.

however this is not only very annoying without any reasons (comments or
email of the flaggers) whatsoever but also kind of lighted some concern
about the carelessness of how people are flagging. they don't seem to
even read the latest comments of the package or try to get a grasp of
their reasoning ([1] is the stable version. they probably want the svn
version which is also available).

i thought about that and putting a fulltext description in the pkg-desc
field is probably not what it's meant to be. so what came to my mind
was a mandatory comment along with flagging to get an idea, why the
person thinks it's out of date.
that would make them think before flagging and also make them come back
and read the response and not flag it out-of-date again.

anyone else having similar issues? or am i overreacting here?
