True, then it is called a "gerund".

False, when it was a gerund the line is a sole
noun phrase. Here it was meant as a present participle
being part of a present progressive but lacking the "are"
which got fused to the "You" caused by phonetic similarity
or possibly by some electric spelling correction.

But that "mistake" in itself was of little importance to
me, what was can be found there:

not least the people on this list :-)
