Unfortunately most sites have a similar classification and they all seem to be based on nothing more than the total number of posts made by the member. I think the classification changes automatically, but I agree with you - I'd like to see it end.
Yes, nearly all sites with discussion forums have this kind of automatic rating system, depending on how many contributions have been made. I was so embarrassed to find myself a 'Super Moderator' that I asked to be changed back to a simple Moderator. I agree with Keith; I can't see the reason for the labels, and the system seems a bit childish.
