Why is steampunk controversial?

If you have opinions about steampunk stuff--literature, art, jewelry, costuming, furniture, lifestyle--I would love it if you'd post comments.

I read BoingBoing, and they post fairly often with pictures of steampunk items that make me just drool my hydration out. Then in the comments on each post there will invariably be remarks from a bunch of jaded assholes citizens* who hatehatehate anything to do with steampunk. Why? What is to hate about it? Help me understand.

ETA: *I'm not calling you a jaded asshole citizen if you merely hate steampunk; I'm calling you one if you act like one.
