Well if you don't mind having the code written in a project not conform to code style rules, then a linter is of no value. You just might have a large variance in the way code is structured/ordered, variables are named, and other code style related things.
When I'm working on a project, I prefer to look at the code base and have it look like it was all written by the same person. A linter helps achieve this in my opinion.
And there's still things like no explicit any that can be enforced by the linter.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
