Sorry Stewart. I thought I checked all the messages but missed this
one. I'm sorry that you feel the way you do, no so much against the
practice, but because you don't have any reason for your statement.
Feeling has much less of a place in clarinet playing than one would
think. As practicing, performing, serious musicians, we need to make
our decisions based on a lot more than how we feel about a practice.
Because we function in a subjective business does not mean that our
arguments about how to play should not have a strong objective side to
them.

You still, of course, have every right to play whatever way you wish,
but you do yourself a disservice by the abandonment of any rational
reason for doing or not doing it.

There are valid technical arguments in support of vibrato on the
clarinet (and other instruments, too, of course) and I suspect that you
are not really as aware of them as you might be.

In any case, thanks for your answer. But I didn't learn anything.
