Correction: there is "a blacklist", but it's only used to prevent
namespace conflicts for users who attempt to upload packages named the
same pkgname as a package in the binary repos.

It is correct to say we have never attempted to blacklist names which
"shouldn't be allowed to exist as packages because $person dislikes the

"aur" isn't inherently a bad name, I could conceive of it being the name
for a package which installs the aur.archlinux.org software, though
"aurweb" would be an even better name. ;)
