I would like to block/ban an artist from playing on my account. For example if I wanted to listen to the playlist "United States Top 50" and wanted to block/ban Artist Justin Bieber it would just skip that song and go to the next track. Is this possible? If not what is the best way to get this feature added?

You can always post a new idea to be added to the Spotify service in the New Ideas area of the community here: https://community.spotify.com/t5/New-Ideas/ct-p/newideas, but there is already an idea like this that was proposed, and has a Status of Not Right Now. You can find the idea here: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Live-Ideas/Block-Hide-Blacklist-tracks-or-artists/idi-p/22389
In the meantime what you can do is just copy and paste those songs from any playlists you want to save the majority of those songs into your own playlist. Then click on the ARTIST column name which will show a green arrow pointing up, which should put the artists in an alphabetical listing from A-Z. Next find that artist or artists name of the content you do not want in a saved playlist, and then just delete those tracks from said playlist. After the songs are removed, click on the column named ARTIST that has the green arrow two more times, and the green arrow should be gone this will return the playlist back to manual sorting mode. If any green arrows are showing on the columns you will not be able to move tracks up and down the playlist like users want to do.
