Re(2): Listener No. 4387: One-man Band by Emu

I though it was an excellent puzzle with some wonderful clues, many of which didn't suffer from the removal of the unwanted character. However, the published solution makes no sense to me. Why is the top vertical floating? Why is the vertical not attached to the base? No wonder Louis has a twisted hip - the whole lot would collapse. I assumed we were supposed to replicate the gallows as represented in the game, Hangman, and joined the vertical to the top and base. I cannot see that this breaches the preamble, which asks for straight lines to be drawn through the cells. There is no note on the Listener website that an alternative to diagram is acceptable. I shall be very peeved to be marked wrong.
