Hi Patrick and welcome to Pro! I'm glad you've found the introductory material worthwhile so far. I'd welcome your (and everyone's) thoughts on what works and what could be better.

Admittedly, much of the Fool is slow at shifting this jargon. We still have "Trade Alerts" which would be better renamed "Investment Alerts" or something similar. The language we use is formed by our thoughts and vice versa. Better to use the jargon and thought patterns of long term investors.

Lon, you'll be pleased to know that after we're done welcoming this group of new Fools, we have a plan to make these changes -- in Options, to begin with. We're thinking "Strategies You Can Start" instead of "Trades You Can Make," etc. Great minds think alike. I agree with what you said about language and thoughts. :)
