Discrimination by the gov't?  Yes.  By employers?  Usually.  By groups
like PLUG?  Nope.

Go look for the PDX LUG, I think they called themselves.  Their whole
reason of being was to be friendlier than PLUG, I think.

That's a choice you'll have to make for yourself.  If you think people
disliking you on a Linux-related mailing list means Microsoft provides a
better Operating System, then by all means switch to Windows.

Newsflash:  You aren't being discriminated against for your sex,
religion, political views, or the color of your skin.

Somebody constantly posting off-topic and inflammatory rants to the PLUG
list under the guise of technical discussion... somebody constantly
disrupting the list... was blocked from using the list at all to keep
the signal-to-noise ratio palatable for most of the list participants.

That is, of course, assuming you were actually blocked and didn't just
mess up your mail server somehow.
