"When the operation is naturally described by a verb, use the verb’s
imperative for the mutating method and apply the “ed” or “ing” suffix to
name its nonmutating counterpart."

I known it. But, the "verb" here should be a action will change the object.
Not every verb will change the object.

Like the word: peek ,copy.

In socket program, there's a action "peek", just check if there has new
data in socket data buffer, not move out the data(like the API receive()).
It's not "receiving".
