Rotten Disc doesn't care on how you store your discs, it's a time bomb issue, and there is nothing you can do to prevent it.
* I had several discs (DVDs, HD DVDs, and Blu-rays) that simply stop playing after a certain time (most of them with bad glue between the two layers).
Blame the factory plants where the studios save money by contracting them without doing their diligent research about quality control.
...So blame the studios first.
As for LPs store them vertically, in a dust-free zone, with each disc inside a rice paper cover. ...And @ normal room temperature.
CDs; check the ones from the 80s and 90s, manufactured by CINRAM, with pinholes, and extremely badly recorded. Those you can get rid of @ your local Savation Army store.
Dual-layer discs need special care when manufactured; the plant has to be impeccable, with good quality control. ...DVDs, Blu-rays, SACDs, ...
...And combo discs (HD DVDs) the same.
