Off-topic -- List for non-Linux-related discussions between PLUG members


About Off-topic
English (USA)

This is the list for PLUG members to use for discussions which are not necessarily of interest to the rest of PLUG. It can be a place to rant and rave, debate pedantic points of language, discuss non-Linux-related news or even argue about the merits of capitalism. Generally, conversations which drift too far from any relevance to Linux move to the off-topic list when people start complaining.
