while I understand and appreciate the positive message here, that
particular present participle stands out to me like a sore thumb.

I couldn't resist, and I searched my edk2-devel archives for it (for the
four letter stem, that is), which go back to ~April 2012.

I'm reporting that in all these years, this has indeed been the first
use of the word.

(Not counting the base64 encodings of some binary files that were posted
to the list, in patches -- but those encodings hardly contain "words".)

Can we stay civil, please?

(And no, I'm not a prude; in fact I've shown such restraint in my own
word choices on this list that I can only congratulate myself.)
