I hate to say it, but LUGs just aren't that necessary anymore since (a)
h/w support and auto-configuration got Good Enough that distros just
automagically install on everything except very old or very odd h/w, and
(b) there's so much online documentation and examples all of the CLI tools.

are not allowed to buy, then those people are not competent
to choose (i.e. vote for) their own leaders.
