I found the same with large channels like #london.pm but smaller ones
I've used in the past have not been as bad simply becuase there isn't
such a constant stream of chat.
Not to denigrate edinburgh.pm but I suspect it would tend more towards
the small and possibly be less alarming.

I also might well use it, at least outside the 9-5.
And hey, it's not like the set up costs are high ;)
