[aur-general] A TU keeps removing harmless and relevant comments from my package's webpage

Dear TUs & Devs,

For obvious reasons, I decided to add the following comment to my
<https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/popular-packages/>webpage on the
AUR recently: "As I'm the author of this little script, I
will always want it to remain in the AUR".

However, I just noticed that the comment has been removed.  I'm assuming
that Alexander (xyproto)
<https://aur.archlinux.org/account/xyproto>probably did this
(silently) as he's the one who removed all prior comments
a couple of days earlier.

I'm not suggesting that my package will become popular enough to enter
[community].  I just have a policy of adding a comment like the one listed
above after uploading something that I authored.

Can someone explain why the TU who removed the above comment considered it
so off-topic that it had to go?  Based on the nature of the comment, I
think the decision to remove it was a bit extreme.

Can someone please reinstate the comment to that webpage?  If it was
Alexander who removed it, I'd also like to know whether he has anything
better to do with his time than troll and nitpick like this.

Regards, Xavion.
