Sheppard is a long time member of SDN, having been around for the board's precedessor, alt.startrek.vs.starwars (aka ASVS). He is outspoken on many issues, most notably nuclear warfare, military spending, and nuking the godless commies. His opinions are considered by some to be somewhat over the top.
He is SDN's only Nukesexual.
Allegations of Bitterness
It has come to our attention that there have been allegations of Sheppard being bitter, most notably against Lonestar, because he gets his ass kicked at RTSes. This is completely false; as if Shep was bitter, he'd be calling Lonestar a shitcock instead of a poopyhead.
