Cut Them Off?

Here is an image illustrating my dying off leaf issue mentioned in a post below. Does it benifit the plant in any way if I go about trimming these dead leaves off or does it not matter one way or another?

Here is a link that might be useful:

don't know about your climate, but I just now cut off spent bloom stalks & raggedy leaves, but I didn't cut the stalks all the way back:

I'll do that after the first hard frost turns them to mush, to give the plants as long as possible to store energy & to give myself as much time as possible to look at green leaves instead of brown mush.

I'd keep the ones that are flowering;
it'll be winter soon enough!
