It's a simple cypher, used occasionally in newsgroups (for things like
punchlines to jokes, spoilers for games, and other things you don't want
to immediately reveal). Each letter becomes the letter 13 characters
earlier (or later) in the alphabet. The chief virtue of the scheme is
that it undoes itself. If you had used a program to decode my tagline,
or this handy chart:

NOPQRSTUVWXYZ would have seen my current tagline; hence, the joke.

ObSonic: Why does anyone think Robotnik was killed in the second season
finale? I mean, Sonic *might* think he and Sally had nuked the egghead
in the whole Power Stone Energy blast (side questions: how long will
their new powers last? Were the Deep Power Stones consumed? If not, how
long will it take them to fully recharge?), but I'd think he'd want some
evidence thereof. As for Snively, he should know better; he *saw*
Robotnik escaping in that hovercraft...
