Unsurprisingly, topics on the discussion list for a Linux users group
will often include Linux-related topics

Trolling is not appreciated.

As you seem to be having a bad "grammar" day, I will refer you to the 
Wikipedia definition of a troll:

  In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory,
  extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an
  online discussion forum, chat room or blog, with the primary intent of
  provoking other users into a desired emotional response or of
  otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

The "grammar" of that sentence would have informed you, had you actually
read it, that USP has been hosting the "PLUG Central meetings".  This is
the place where PLUG Central holds actual, physical meetings.

Michael Toren has kindly provided mailing list services for PLUG for a
number of years.

In the future, if you're tired of a relevant topic, don't read the
