[Developer] Block musical styles

So my submision was closed due to "similarities" with other submited ones.

Well, since it was unilateral and there was no chance for me to clarify it, here it goes again.
We should have a way to completely block a music style/genre.
And it means not only that it´ll prevent these styles to be offered, but also filter out the ads based on these styles.
So my idea was closed due to similarities with these ideas:
https://community.spotify.com/t5/Live-Ideas/Ads-Ads-Filter/idi-p/11675
https://community.spotify.com/t5/Closed-Ideas/Music-Ability-to-block-certain-Genres/idi-p/1415644

These are not exactly the same. First of all, I don´t want to choose the ads. The first link complains about something like a NSFW ad. What I propose here is that no ad is presented if it´s related to a blocked music style/genre.
The second link is indeed, similar. 

My point is that it´s not only related to the suggested track lists. It needs to affect completely the contents that you see on Spotfy. Clear out the music styles/genres that you have blocked will allow you to focus  in the content that you like.
Just as an example, I only received ads from terrible music styles. Never from one that I have selected as my preferred.
These previous ideas had an interesting number of votes. Let´s combine them!
