That does not surprise me at all.
IceChat runs terrible for

HUGE channels like that.

Easy suggestion, don't use IceChat for channels that large, it was never meant to work

reliably with them. Anything more then 500 users, and IceChat just lags. Its because of the programming language that IceChat

is currently written in.  Version 6 will most likely solve these problems.

what kind of channel has 3500 users in it! that's more than

most SERVERS! Even the largest channel on the largest network on the world has much less than that. Sounds like a suspicious

bot channel or something to me.
Icechat - how cool can you GET?
