Entering a large chat room (flooding client with user list)

Is there a suggested strategy for dealing with large numbers of user items upon entering a LARGE chat room, say over 100 users. As soon as I would enter the room I would receive the user list and that would cause my client to hang as it deals with all that data. Is there a way of dealing with this in a smarter, snappier, way? Say… throttling the user list instead of sending it all at once?
