      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
      http://www.naishkites.com/pdf/aerouserguide.pdf. Even this could possibly
      foul, but the chances are reduced.
