I am not a formally trained GIS professional nor is GIS a primary tool in my job. And therefore, without an incentive to optimize GIS workflows, I may not understand why one tool, although seeming to accomplish the same goal as another, may be better for a given task .
Sometimes answers or comments are given that imply or clearly state that the best tool to accomplish a given task is tool x and perhaps not the one suggested in the accepted/upvoted answer. Missing is a reason the other tool is not as good or the other better. I think this is important, to me anyway, to educate the asker and the answerer who has provided a not so good answer.
In this case, I would like to understand why Zonal Statistics is not the best tool for Count raster values in each polygon?
