First of all, the formatting of your email is completely shit.

Yes, that is how VCS packages work.  Either suck it up, or stop using

The pkgver field in VCS PKGBUILDs in the AUR mean nothing.

None of these packages seem to be CVS packages, so I don't see how this 
is relevant.  Either way, the quoted line would probably still be 
irrelevant if there were.

AUR VCS PKGBUILDs can by definition not be out of date, unless they're 
out of date in the sense that the build process has changed.

I have no idea what you're trying to say here.

1) I might unsuspend you, but I'm feeling doubtful that you're going to 
change, so probably not.
2) Justice is what has been served.
3) Which exact "laws" are we not following?

Anyway, I also sent you an email 2 days ago after suspending you for 
flagging jasonwryan's VCS packages out of date over and over, which you 
haven't replied to.
