I moderate 2 IRC rooms myself (and frequent several others frequently).
The most annoying behaveour (apart from the occasional trolls) we have to deal with are people stating a question (without first saying hi usually) then leaving 10 seconds later while you're typing an answer.
This now happens so often that many ops and longtime members just wait a few minutes before answering a question of an unknown user to see if they're persistent enough to wait.
