That is pretty accurate to the 2006 usage. You can see it in this post from the otaku lingo thread here. The word has changed significantly in how it is applied in psuedo-english usage since then.

The english usage has been losing any concrete meaning and has become over-inclusive into things it doesn't actually apply to. Many people abuse it to describe a certain drawing style, usually one that draws their ire.
