OED has launched an "Appeals" campaign, where we solicit help from the
public to find antedatings (etc.) of problematic words. We have a list
of eight items up now, including _cooties, FAQ, Kwanzaa,_ and _Bellini_,
and will be adding 1-2 new items a week for the near future. See the
details at http://www.oed.com/appeals.
