This one's easy. It's difficult to tell civilians from professionally trained guerillas, so if there's even a hint, "shoot on sight" is often the MO - and war crimes are litigated later.

At least on first sight, you look like a trained combatant.

It's true that anybody who comes on here with a certain uniqueness to their diction is inevitably accused of being Sheppy.

So, be common, or be questioned.

That being said, I don't even know what "New York style pizza" means. I like pizza and I think Home Run frozen pizza beats most of the restaurant pizzas I've had anywhere. LaRocca's, Harmony, Greenbush......they're all good and I couldn't care less what style they're considered. Food talk is boring.

Sounds an awful lot like Sheppy talk to me. How do we know you aren't Sheppy? J'accuse!

I've been accused of being Sheppy at least twice. I always took it as a compliment of sorts.

I too have felt the sharp sting of "Sheppy" slander.

That being said, when I'm mayor, this Forum will be a more civil and friendly place, where no one will say hurtful things like "Taco is Sheppy!" or "Food talk is boring".

When my administration is stuffed with my pals Burrito and Chorizo, things will be different!

Will you allow Chorizo to moonlight in the Sausage Races at Miller Park?

Definitely. You gotta let your staff blow off a little steamy goodness - otherwise, they get broiled in sex scandals.

It took Earthy six days to come clean as a Sheppy identity. We've got until the 20th to razz TimeMasterFlex into submission.

Has anyone looked at his profile?

Interests: Money.


And the website, of course: http://www.specialoperations.com/Army/D ... fault.html

I don't remember what "person" posted this thread, but it's got plenty of Delta Force references and shares a style with a certain Shepster.

Everyone, please stop sucking Sheppy's cock. He was a boring unfunny lame-o windbag and you've made him into some sort of Forum legend. It's also highly improbable that every new fake forum persona is your beloved Sheppy in sheep's clothing. Get over it already.

Sheppy's shtick does get old. But what about Talon Newsman? I miss his Stephen Corbert imitation.

Sometimes I think it's just me and a schizophrenic AI posting in this forum.

Is this when we have a Spartacus moment?

"I am Sheppy."

I think he bailed after the infamous "Monica" thread.
