Is there a list of all the "ranks" for posters on L19? I've seen:
beginner
dies in gote
dies with sente (probably worse than lives in gote, but depends on board situation?)
lives in gote
lives with ko
lives in sente
shodan
judan
tengen
oza
gosei

I've listed in the order I guess the run from someone new to the forum to most active/old hands, though I have little confidence in the order of the last three and am not even sure if they are strictly ordered.

Rumor has it, once you reach kisei, you can’t lose any arguments on the forum.

Then again, the reason might just be that you’re practically the only one posting at that point.

L19 ranks are the opposite of Go ranks, for they reflect quantity, not quality, and the former is inversely correlated with the latter.

Disagree.
At go, one cannot have quality (high level games; high rank) without quantity (having played many games, that is).
Quantity and quality are different dimensions on different scales.

I nominate new title for 20,000+ posts to be named 'Zero'
But then again, I haven't see anyone with 10,000+ posts yet.

Things have quieted down a lot since 2013 or 2014. I think you might be one of the more prolific posters during that time...
