Yes there is, for example I found it useful (I'm interested in dynamic
languages but I'm only subscribed to c.l.p) maybe others too. Gave me
a much needed 5 minutes of recreational reading of his website which
was just about perfect while drinking my coffee during coffee break :)

Yes, but not everything that is off-topic is noise.

Are you seriously worried that c.l.p will be overtaken by zealous dao fans?
