    It is my understanding the Mr. Shep will no longer be posting on the Citrus Forum, nor any of the other UBC forums. This is a GIANT loss here at the citrus forum. Mr. Shep had so much knowledge to offer. One of the only reasons I posted on this forum was to read Mr. Shep's threads, and his magic answers. Sad. - Millet

    Moved to Conversations & Chat??? What does Mr. Shep no longer posting on the Citrus Forum have to do with Conversations & Chat? - Millet

    Pretty simple. The discussion isn't about Citrus, but rather about a person who once participated on these forums.

    Mr. Shep participated beyond the citrus forum, as far as I can remember.

    I too am sorry to hear that-- Mr. Shep was the one that identified the problem with my Ponkan mandarin that first brought me to this forum. I will certainly miss him.

    I don't know specifically why he dropped out but it was obvious he did not like to be challenged. It would be better if his often interesting recollections were still being presented here, despite the regular inclusion of debatable ideas and obtuse remarks. But it's up to him.

    Does anyone know how I can contact Mr. Shep? I believe he has some valuable information that would be of interest to me.
