Firstly, I don't think that offloading support to loco channels is going to help much. Not all loco channels have the resources to support such requests. Additionally, people don't want to wait for support, so we'll probably get a lot of cross-posting across channels, which can create just as much traffic as in the original problem.

Perhaps Empathy should hide joins and parts in large IRC channels by default in order to make the chat feel like it is moving slower. I personally use a separate irssi window for tracking JOIN/PARTs in #ubuntu due to the traffic they contribute.
