Automatically block Array Columns (Circular dependency)

Glide needs to eliminate or block the ability to edit Array columns. It reduces errors and save a lot of time. Will also prevent unnecessary crashes.

array columns automatically fills the column with data as new rows of data are inserted. By blocking user ability to edit that column automatically glide would have placed a safety (Braking system ) in app development that prevents the app developer from accidentally programming a conflict.

This is similar to google sheets circular dependency.
It is contradictory to have array columns editable, therefore it should be read only and not allowed to be added as an editable option in list or forms.
