Well, though I do not think that the sentences agree(after all, the
meaning is quite opposite), I trust you when you say that "no
conjunction" is more fitting.
It's an odd feeling when there is no conjunction, it doesn't feel wrong,
it is just that I am used to conjuctions.
Anyway, thanks for the help.
