What brought you onto IRC?

I remember back in the days of AOL messenger there were a lot of spam bots. It was nearly impossible to get into a chat room without spam bots.
I discovered IRC when looking for alternative chat rooms without bots. I haven't looked back since!
So what brought you onto IRC? share your story here.

In August of 2011, I was looking around the internet for alternatives websites for role playing, as my Facebook group had been hammered by FB's changes to their chat windows and their groups, as it made it harder for us to effectively roleplay and give contrast between our OOC(out of character) and IC (in-character) messages. I found a few channels on Rizon, and then everything kinda snowballed from there, from becoming helpstaff on Rizon, creating my own network, helping out a few other IRC based service providers, and loads more. Funnily enough, my searching is what brought me to IRC-Source, as I had found that SearchIRC had gone dead, and other providers had to take its place. A year later I noticed xnite talking about IRC-Source on another network(which for the life of me I can't remember), and talked to him, and that's how I ended up here. :D
