People who frequently use the word "boilerplate" seem to either be:
* Journalists
* Programmers
* Aerospace engineers (although I'm told their usage is slightly different from the previous two)

Enter discipleship

@srol there's mention of the word "boilerplate" in the International Accounting Standards Board's discussion paper on Disclosure Initiative

Mostly about how it's not sensible for companies to just meet a checklist of disclosures, because some disclosures are not material/relevant to their particular nature of business

So for practitioners or preparers of financial reports, "boilerplate" doesn't have good connotations. Then again, many auditors disagree with these preparers
