So, if soft forks do not create new networks, why are they run, then?

I think the problems that hard forks have caused the two bitcoin cash (BCH and BSV) works shows that you should only use hard forks as a last resort.  When possible, soft forks are better because you don't have the possibility of a split that will dilute the network affects.

Hardforks generally should be avoided, this is a dangerous game.

I think majority of crypto market participants don't understand what is the difference

As some of you said here before, hard fork allows you to do some changes, define parameters etc. which I find useful

Thanks for this post, it's really helpful. I agree with an opinion that hard forks should be avoided as much as possible - i mean, the results of big updates shouldn't always end as a hard fork, that's what soft forks are for.
