I spotted this on the Steampunk Mexico Forum.  A tongue in cheek article by Austin Sirkin on the classification of annoying Steampunks...  Which type do you belong to?

Very, very funny.  Also disturbingly insightful.  Does anyone else feel a bit naked, blushing and vulnerable, clad only in about four labels?  Tempted to withdraw into the bushes?

I think most Steampunks fit into several categories simultaneously and evolve in and out of others...

Where's the Clueless Newbie stereotype? That's me - the person who reads the forums and does not contribute because they feel like a dunce by just enjoying dressing up sometimes when everyone else discusses deep social and philosophical issues.  Wink

This guy's written some good articles actually, I hadn't encountered him before. I'm guilty of a great many things it seems, and yet somehow I feel no remorse, shamelessness must be an art I've perfected over the years.

I'm curious and I need to ask, per chance, among makers and sellers, do we have an equivalent of the "Soup Nazi"? Like a totalitarian-inspired Steampunk maker?

Ref. Seinfeld:
Seinfeld SOUP NAZI best bits.

Missed off the listmaker, a steampunk with an overwhelming compulsion  to make lists of steampunk things, but not actually make those things. Bit of a blind spot there.

The slashpunker is also missed off, you know the person who goes around saying "I am steampunk/furry punk/furrypunk/faeriepunk/bronypunk." They are nothing but punks.

Worst of all pseudo-organisers, people playing at steampunk to run an event which is a disaster/scam trading off the reputations of genuine bands/makers for money or their own aggrandisement or both. We have had a couple of those trying to piggy back off the legitimate events.

Where was the NSFW warning on that? Oh wait, I use my iPad so my work does not know how much time I spend on the 'net.

In Character (No. 13)

From the escritoire of Great-Aunt Camellia - who really talks this way.

Oh, my dears. As a Privileged (No. 6) Material Snob (No. 2), and Definer (No. 3), who is, most unfortunately, a History Nazi (No. 9), I am caught like a deer in the carriage-lamps. How dreadfully inhibiting! However, since Inhibition is my middle name, I expect I shall manage.

I should like to put in a word for those of us whose memories are filled with people and objects surviving from the Victorian era. In my youth, like most English people of my age, I was surrounded by elderly Victorians and Edwardians and their possessions, and their trains, perfectly genuine examples of living history. Actually, I lived in Bournemouth, which was then the Elephant's Graveyard of Anglo-Indians. I feel as if we Relics carry their Torch and are obliged to represent them.

Thus, I and my Ilk are a Supremely Annoying sub-group of Relics - Historians, Historical Artifacts, reaching across time (in lace gloves) to share the Steam experience via affectionate self-parody.

Take my camel, dear, said my aunt Camellia, climbing down from that animal on her return from high mass. The camel, a white Arabian Dhalur (single hump) from the famous herd of the Ruola tribe, had been a parting present, its saddle-bags stuffed with low-carat [sic] gold and flashy orient gems, from a rich desert tycoon. . . .

The "Zen Masters and the MacGyvers." Seemingly always able to cobble a major project together with a shoestring, a paper clip and some left over Marmite.  They will always claim that the project "assembled itself."
