Dear People Selling Things on Ebay and Etsy
Just because it’s a typewriter doesn’t mean it’s “steampunk.”
I possess three typewriters, none of which are steam-powered, nor did they come with ray guns. I don’t operate them on any sort of airship or dirigible. They are, if anything, “Algonquin Round Table Punk” or “School Secretary Punk.”
Please fix your definitions accordingly.
