    Many reasons in fact but a butt joint ( a straight one ) is notoriously weak and
    prone to damage.

    I've seen straight joins done, there was this metal thing with hundereds of
    rings on each end of the belt and a wire was through the rings linking the
    ends.

    Because if the joints were orthogonal, they would go, "SLAP! SLAP! SLAP!..."
    and the joint would fail much sooner.

    Good Luck!
