Yes, all the time. It is great.
I use python, kubuntu, ubuntu, pygame, panda3d, blender channels very often.
I have almost never had any problems other than low traffic and
needing to wait for 1 hour to get an answer but then I often go to
some other list to get help and that works.
I wonder as I read your remark, if you have been on these channels and
what problems you had? I have been on other channels that are like
porn or totally 12 year old crazy chats but not these channels.
