@coala There is a limit to how many appear on the profile page, that's true. But they are still remembered, still appear in your email export, still pre-light the star when that song comes up again (or on the original playlist), still show up in DJ's view if they play a song you'd previously favorited, still show up on the "who favorited this song" page for that song, and any other ways the favorite could come up.

I saw a video sponsored by the New Yorker about sound pollution that mentioned a study of whale poo which foud that their stress levels were lower during the week after 911 when shipping slowed and they were not subjected to the usual underwater noise from the ships' motors.

i have a cassette of 4 different whale songs someone made for me in the 90s. i'm not finding it right now, even though it's catalogued alphabetically because i don't remember the title.
it has 4 tracks, each from a different region of the earth.

i did a camping trip around new england c.1991 and visited the main seaweed company (who sells to the "main coast" seaweed company) and they had created boats with motors totally insulated from the water except for the propellers.
it can be done.
