My Question or Issue

Why on Zeus's good Earth does Spotify not repeat from the top of a playlist?

I start a playlist (that I've deftly crafted and curated) from a song towards the end of the playlist, and after the last song of the playlist is played, the playlist repeats from the first song I picked. The correct functionality of the repeat button is to obediently repeat the playlist from the top of the list, regardless of where in the playlist the music started.


Who knows? I've started the playlist from that particular song several times, and maybe, a rogue Spotify algorithm picked up on my behavior egregiously thinking,  "Hey, ladlelord really likes starting the playlist from this song. So, since the playlist just finished, I'm sure they'll like to start there after the playlist finishes."

Zeus no! Absolutely not, I don't!


Also, if anyone is thinking this should be a feature, it should not. If I wanted this behavior, I'd make another playlist.


While I'm here, is there a plain text submission form for bug requests?
