LUGNET™ is the LEGO® Users Group NETwork, located here
It is a newsreader based community, that also offers web and mail access to discussion. Use is free, although membership (for a donation) provides access to a few additional features (set lists, set ratings, polls, easier posting).
LUGNET hosts discussion on a variety of LEGO related topics, including theme specific discussion for many of the themes LEGO has ever done, as well as locale specific discussion for many geographies, and organization specific discussion. Browsing the lugnet.org newsgroup hierarchy is a good way to find clubs and organizations.
