IRC is a place where people of all types go to chat and download files. IRC was very popular in the late 90s and early 00s for warez. It was also very popular for gaming clans to meet in order to coordinate themselves better. These days almost every website has a channel on some IRC network. Most people who go on IRC don't know how to use most of the commands available to them because they are retarded.
The IRC network for the LURKMORE Group is irc.lurkmore.com, the network channel is #lurkmore.
#chanchan is the channel that CHANCHAN moved to after it was decided that EnterTheGame was not a suitable network for the site. Since CHANCHAN started it changed through six IRC networks until it reached the current one.
The users in CHANCHAN have various scripts running to repeat quotes and other fun games. The easiest way to find the commands is to type !help when you join the channel (may not apply any longer).
Another channel for the chans acting as a placeholder for CHANSLUTS.
#malegeneral is the current channel for the denizens of Male General. It has been the largest channel on the network for some time.
#tranchan is a fairly new channel that has been growing recently (as of July 2010). It is the main chat for TranCHAN's population.
