Because when joining lines, any knot, including a fishermans, will cause
fouling in the lines and a resultant loss of kite control, if the lines are
twisted at the knot area after a relaunch or spin. Especialy if all 4 lines
are joined in this way
Safest and neatest is on page 3 at

foul, but the chances are reduced.
