Did this term first appear in 1992? Can we trace who first came up with or used the term? 17:08, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

I've added a 1988 cite. The fact that the term is in quotation marks in this usage suggests that it was a relatively new term when used then. bd2412 T 03:07, 1 September 2012 (UTC)
