@Greg, remember "Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum viditur," which translates into "Whatever is said in Latin sounds profound."

comment What is another word for “boss” for a company with a flatter hierarchy?
@T.E.D., you're right. He also didn't like the "Team Leader" moniker, so "Team Lead" is not much different. I would suggest "Team Facilitator."

comment “Username”, “user name” or “user-name”
@Mark, I have no problem with using "User ID" or "User's identification code" when referring the the user's identification. I am, however, very big on consistency. If the development teams uses "UserName" as a field name and variable name inside the code, reference these elements in technical documents, there is a better than even chance that this phraseology will leak through to the end user. In that case, I'd prefer to use the same term they used so there won't be a document referring to the same item by two terms.
