I did, in fact, read the thread, and pointed out that featured sounds make it, in some ways, easier to avoid them.
Given that trends are what a lot of creators look for, and sounds are just another way of creating a trend, and that grouping it like this actually makes it easier for us to avoid sounds we don’t like, I don’t see how featured sounds would drive anybody off?
You then came in with a statement that featured sounds would actively drive off new users. When it was pointed out that audio trends might bring in new users, rather than draw them away, you brought up your past experiences and claimed you had data. All I’m doing is asking for that data to be provided outside of “well I told you so and I know what I’m talking about”.
