I almost hate to inject a note of semi-seriousness into this conversation,
but I use QAed, as does everybody around here. It's compact and
efficient and gets the job done.

The job is to indicate "tested by QA department", as opposed to
sanity-checked, or unit-tested, or beta-tested, or tested by
Product Verification, or...
All of those are ways that [potential] product gets tested
before it ever reaches QA.

If you have a better way, bring it on. I'm happy to oblige.

And a disposable one at that.
