Re(4): Listener No. 4368, The Name of the Game: A Setter's Blog by Harribobs

My thought about this is that a clue is more aesthetically pleasing without a link word if it flows seamlessly, whenever that is possible (which is usually). Of course, I too had to rewrite a large proportion of my first Listener crossword but, like a number of compiling friends, omit those links for other outlets (where they would be tolerated) if a reasonable surface reading can be managed without them.
