Well, it should be said that also most of the operators decided to care
for both channels or stay on freenode.

Well, out of the 40 people on #debian-offtopic, around 10% are DDs, and
another 10-20% are known members of the Debian community. So maybe the
problem is that having those people around there gives the channel some
sort of credibility it should not have (given that most of those people
in there just idle).
