I'm 1000% okay with my mods being used in collections. I literally cannot understand why someone would be against it. It makes it easier for end users and gets more people exposure to an author's work.

A good chunk of what we've built here will be reusable with mod pages when they get moved to Nexus Mods Next. 

As for your other point. This is what we mean by "Filter Collections by Mod(s)" in the "What's next?" section. :)

As someone who had to reinstall Skyrim and related mods a few times due to various issues, the collection section has been an absolute godsend...a master-stroke of genius. When OOTD and several Beyond Skyrim mods come out, I'll probably have to do it again. The collections makes it to where I use FAR less profanity on the reload.
The fact that some minor issues are being worked on is just extra icing on the cake. One helluva job!

Why wouldn't they? it's essentially as if the curator was a youtuber sharing good mods in a video, with links in the description below.

Except now there is just one link that auto-downloads everything, rather than the viewer having to go to every mod individually and hit the button there. And as I understand it the mod's analytics are still appropriately updated for the mod's author as if the mod was downloaded from the page directly.

I'm also fine with it, but if you "literally cannot understand" why many people didn't feel the same way maybe this'll help:

Some authors didn't want to deal with even more mod-conflict "bug" reports caused by integrators missing an interaction and putting a mod that guaranteed problems with theirs in a collection.

Others objected to having control of their work taken away from them. Say the Nexus expresses an opinion a few months from now that an author finds morally unacceptable: that women and blacks don't deserve civil rights, for example. With collections, those authors have lost the ability to remove their mods from the site in protest, and could even be viewed as endorsing that position when in reality they're opposed to it.

Others had different reasons, but those were the two big ones. There are significant pros and cons on both sides, with a lot of nuance to some of them: it's a more complex issue than it looks, and unfortunately one that didn't have an answer that could keep everyone happy, which is why quite a few high-profile modders chose to leave the Nexus over it rather than accept the negatives. You and I don't have to feel the same way, but that doesn't make their response any less valid.
