Never heard of that.
Usually I hear the power supply handles it just fine.
in 80% of cases it does but it doesn't hurt to have it
its more about ESD protection then anything

Well I am using sticky velcro under the PCB feet for the time being.
Any way to ground them while still have them on velcro.
As long as I am not ripping the velcro and putting it back on constantly or rubbing it against stuff it shouldn't generate any static build up.

id be more concerned with the Velcro coming off
if its working and you don't have any nasty audio noise issues I would't be worried about it
just be aware of it some boards relie on it for correcting ground loop issues or ESD proofing

The velcro is pretty strong.
I've held up speakers with velcro for many months with no issue.
I will check for any audio noise issues.
I am currently using an old Asus Xonar DG sound card.

If you have access to a 3D printer these work great.
