It's not just about doing it. There is an amazing wealth of info on this site and I personally recommend it as often as I can.

It's also about spreading Perl around to more IPs, inter-related sites, etc. It's visibility outside of the "echo chamber" Schwern discussed in his slides and it's good search engine seeding. E.g., I just did a sample Google search for Perl + ${redacted common term} and my site was above Perl Monks in the results.
