And by "characterization" they mean all of your characters must be shallow, selfish, greedy, and stupid -- in short, punks. After characterization, the next (and only) other purpose of fiction is to portray society, and by "society" they mean a dirty, corrupt, dehumanizing, dull, and hopeless society.

As a lover of space based fiction I've just never found cyberpunk, or steampunk, appealing.
