I think he was referring to the destruction of collectible timepieces under the guise of creating steampunk "art"

log off did you? were you afraid of porn stuff popping up? steampunk has nothing to do with porn or anything "porn-ish" rather it is something akin to king richard's faire or thereabouts--people into some era gone by. they actually have a steampunk day in waltham mass, home of the now defunct waltham watch.

There are some aspects of steampunk I actually enjoy a lot- like the gizmos they use on Warehouse 13, and like Wiki stated, the way the Victorians envisioned the future. But the current wave of S/P artists creating watches the way they do....no, I don't get it either! I usually just try and forget about it as quickly as I can. You have my empathy.

My apologies, I realised after the post what you were getting at. Sometimes it's hard to judge comments on emails.:thumbup1:
