Once a liner is punctured or during a long wet period when the outside of the gutter is continuously damp, water collects under the lining and then the only escape is through the bottom of the gutter down the walls.

The problem over time can be worse than not having a liner. Liners all have some sort of joints that rely on silicones to keep them watertite (outlets, neighbours, etc) which in turn have a limited life and rely on the person using them correctly.

Cutting gutters off takes the problem outside the walls and as such the only problem you can have is a blocked gutter. Even this is catered for as the gutter is designed with the back higher than the front so the water will run over the front of the gutter and not into the house.
