I've moved your post from the ideas exchange to another board (Help -> Other). Please only use the ideas section to submit new ideas, as stated in our idea submission guidelines. This still might not be the right place for this topic but the one that would fit best (and I don't have permissions for other boards to move :D)
I've explained my problems (apparently all related to Connect multiple times. It's not going to be fixed until the developers either turn the feature off until it's working correctly, or add in a switch so I can turn it off manually (which doesn't turn off other features and doesn't auto-reset every 30 days, a la "offline mode")
The best answer we've got so far from @Meredith is "Spotify doesn't care what you want - it's not in our pipeline and we don't think we have enough feedback, so go vote and comment on these other issues". Frankly, that's just a tad (hint: sarcasm here!) below the standards I expect as a paying customer (I could maybe understand it if it only seemed to be a small number of people, but there's literally dozens of threads with hundreds of posts from a wide range of people, and more created every day) and as I've already explained, I've already started looking at alternatives.
