[Seaside] #seaside value?

I've long noticed that #seaside attracts newbie questions but few useful
responses from the experienced.  I did a quick survey of the logs for
the last 30 days:

Questions: 18
Answers: 5
Referrals: 4

By referrals I mean a response that suggests that newbie look elsewhere,
this list for example, versus something the newbie considers an actual
useful response.  I tend to be the source for many of these.  Sometimes
there was both a referral and a useful answer to the same question, I
counted that as an answer and not a referral.

This was the totality of traffic on #seaside over the last 30 days,
there were no other conversations of any kind.

I have to wonder if the #seaside IRC channel actually has any value, for
it to have some active users and developers of Seaside are going to have
to start hanging out and responding more.
