[Slightly OT] Releasing swap space?

Hey list

Just a quick query about releasing swap space. On occasion according to Conky (system monitoring app), the swap space (set at 3Gb) sometimes gets used to up to 15% especially if using something like Pan for usenet.

Is there any value/ harm in releasing this space using something like:

swapoff -a && swapon -a [1]

Thanks for your opinions.
