lishid [1] filed a deletion request for obsidian-insider [2]:

Whoever is reviewing this deletion request - thank you for taking your
time. This will be my one and only last attempt to request this
package for deletion. Feel free to suspend my account if this violates
any of your policies.

I am the author of Obsidian (for verification you can email me [admin
at obsidian.md]). I am deeply disappointed by the community of
ArchLinux users.

I understand that you guys feel justified in hosting scripts which
downloads our insider packages from GitHub, which are not meant for
public use. While this may be legal, it's just a shitty thing to do on
the internet.

I am well aware that you don't "host" anything on your servers, but I
invite you to be respectful internet citizens and respect the wishes
of software authors who make software that supports your platform.

Thank you for your consideration.

P.S. We've removed the "insider" GitHub hosted files, so this package
will now be an actual duplicate of
https://aur.archlinux.org/pkgbase/obsidian as it will no longer be
able to access those files from the build script.

Hopefully that's a good enough reason to delete or merge this package
into `obsidian`. Thanks!
