I'm going to sound totally out of the loop, but I've never actually heard Negima called that. Man, am I behind the times or what?

It hasn't been called that since its massive genre shift.

Not to mention that its goddamn idiotic a thing to call it, even as a joke.

Regardless, that's what it was called. And jokes are idiotic; comes with the territory.

I don't remember ever hearing it called that, though I remember "Love Hogwartz" being somewhat common.

Nevertheless, I consider his work to distribute free Love Hina PDFs legally and his work with the http://www.j-comi.jp/​ website to be very important. Say what you want about the manga he creates these days, but his work elsewhere to give fans a legal alternative to unlawful manga scans is really innovative in my opinion.
