I know we've had this discussion before...  I admit the "Ripping Off 
King Arthur" continuity might be Tech or Superhuman, depending on where 
beds and web comics get their power from there.  But I don't really see 
a problem with the classification system.  Still, there might be room 
for a new category...  I'm tempted to call it "Absurdist".

Oh, I am...  Whenever Ordered Realities shows up in my stories (even the 
ones which never made it onto RACC), they're effectively villains.  But 
really they're only villainous in the same sense the U.S. Congress is. 
They don't exactly live up to heroic ideals, but they make deals and 
muddle through.
