Timing chain oiling

I know that thin metal disc that is front of the crank sprocket is supposed to deflect oil to the chain. Does it hurt if you don't have one on?

It is my understanding that it is made/designed to deflect oil away from the crankshaft/timing cover seal and you should leave in place to "help" keep the front seal from leaking.

Just looking at one they look more like a DEflector more than a slinger. I don't use them.
