Some channels are just like that. If you have a question, usually you just ask and wait a while until someone gets around to answer it or have a conversation with you about it.

Checking my IRC client since yesterday, there's at least 500 new messages in almost all channels I've joined. Some more popular channels like #linux have constant conversations going.

What server do you use?

A person's server list is like a little black book. They'll likely not share so other people don't pollute it.

Freenode primarily. Plenty of other servers out there for different communities, too.
