Soulseek chat rooms

I may be missing the obvious here. Soulseek has a large number of chat rooms. Most of rooms have more than a few people in them but seldom is there any chat. Why are people in them?

I always wondered the same thing.. no-one ever seems to talk about anything :|

I didn't last long trying to use them - especially after I joined a private tracker with an IRC channel. At least the people there actually say shit.

Why are people in them ?

To search for a music from a specific genre.

The rooms are searchable. For example the room trancEaddict has all users that are sharing trance music. You can search the entire room for "Tiesto" by right clicking and hitting "Search in room" or you can manually browse through each users shares by right clicking on their name.
