Why do monitor cables have screws on them?

Why do monitor cables (VGA and DVI cables) have to be screwed into the computer's case and the monitor itself? What's the reason for them having to be secured extra-well while other cables, such as USBs or audio jacks (TRS) simply plug in?

I've heard that hot-plugging a monitor (plugging it into the computer while the computer is on) will wreck the computer or monitor. Is this true?

This type of connector was selected when monitors were only CRT's. Swiveling the monitor without these screws attached usually resulted in the cable becoming unplugged and a large hassle getting to the back of the monitor to re-connect.
