Let the ood flag be there, it doesn't hurt anyone if that's not true.
You already stated it's the latest stable release in the comments, and
people will eventually check and risk installing it either way. That
will avoid any trolls be fed. Then you can start thinking about a
feature request for improving the AUR's functionality in a way that
makes some more sense. People who would flag a package out of date
would write a comment like "because it's autof date"

The software in question seems to be used by ignorant people that
haven't finished their first book on a programming language. Besides
the constant unflagging and thinking about what's wrong with the
system, common sense would also suggest you consider orphaning. Umm, a
wiki paragraph that empowers maintainers to let accounts be disabled
for this way of trolling, would also be nice. I just don't know how
far disabling accounts and/or logging of the AUR goes already, maybe
that would be a place if you really want to get serious.
