Getting pinged while on IRC

weird question- when using IRC why was i getting pinged all the time?

I really do not use it and decided to try it out for the Dvdtalk chat.

i was being pinged a bunch. is this normal or something to be concerned about?

I think I will not use IRC for a bit unless there is an easy way to stop them

But you can set up your irc client to ignore pings or at least not send a reply to them right? It's been about 5 or so years since I've been to IRC but I seem to recall that...
