According to the U.S. Fire Administration (Division of U.S. Department of Homeland Security), between 2002-2004, clothes dryers were involved in an estimated 15,600 U.S. structure fires, fifteen deaths, 400 injuries and $99 million in direct property damage, annually. The leading cause of clothes dryer fires was lack of maintenance (lint build-up in the exhaust system).
The unnatural compressed state of the flex hose reduces the aperture of the pipe by 18%. Include a couple 90-degree bends and the result will be an incredible airflow reduction and efficiency loss in exhausting the lint-laden air. These lint filled hoses can become very dangerous if left uncleaned. Lint is very combustible. Having it sit right next to a heat source (your dryer) is an accident waiting to happen.
When clothes are given the appropriate amount of air, they dry quicker and are subject to less tumbling. This results in less wear on the clothes and less use of electricity or gas.
