You are missing the point. Rank segregation is ALREADY occurring. If you use pre-set ranges via a drop-down like I suggest, you would actually find MORE people posting public games and have more people able to find games to play. GameFinder would become far more useful.
As it is now, segregation is actually worse because we have the added separation of those who have found the forum thread & learned the secret password(s) and those who haven't and try to pick up the occasional game where they can.
Having clunky, non-obvious, artificial rank segregation is not a good way to avoid rank segregation!
Suggesting people segregate manually because you think segregation is wrong is rather inconsistent, no?
