Why is Spotify Unwilling to Allow Exclusion Tagging?

Why is Spotify Unwilling to Allow Exclusion Tagging?

For the past Five years, I have been asking for One thing from Spotify, and one thing Only.
I want to be able to exclude genre tags from ever showing up.

There are genres I have no interest in, will not have interest in, and Do Not Want to receive recommendations for.

And yet, even after 500 people have publicly agreed with me, On this platform! Where less than 1% of the users have ever been to! Still, this is ignored.
I have spent longer asking for this feature than I spent active duty in the United States Military.
I do not want music my abusers listened to, to ever show up in my Spotify.
And yet, because it makes Spotify money, I still have to deal with this**bleep**, every **bleep**ing day when I open the app.
What's the **bleep**ing point of being premium if I'm unable to curate my experience?
