The reason was given here already, i.e. making (seemingly) bogus
requests. I guess marking inactive should also ask for a reason in the
future and mail that to the inactivee. That's something which I believe
does not exists yet.

As said before, it's common to first flag it out of date, wait for
results and then orphan it.

Different TU's accept AUR requests, and respond differently to requests
such as "Yo I got this my dude". 

Anyway please take a deep breath, calm down and refrain from
re-iterating already mentioned statements. If you don't calm down, I
will moderate you here, since this discussion is not going anywhere.

It's hard not to judge if you keep making/re-iterating the topic instead
of calming down. And asking in a friendly manner if your account can be
activated again.
