Often you'll copy some stuff, like this:
<ingy> hey rking, you should use YBFOD: http://search.cpan | .org/~ingy/Acme-YBFOD-0.11/
Getting that URL to a browser is tedious.
Another IRC example is longer quotes:
<strunk> Objective consideration of contemporary phenomena compels the conclusion that success or failure in competitive activities exhibits no tendency to be commensurate with enate capacity but that a considerable element of the unpredictable must invariably be taken into account. I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill, but time and chance happeneth to them all.
If you wanted to quote that to someone, you'd have \n's and “ ”'s everywhere, unless you ran “clipjoin” first.
