Posts were once called 'Offices'. And way back when, they were called  
'Ministries'. I prefer 'Ministry' to anything else. Especially  
because it lends itself well to nicknames, like Minilaw for the  
Ministry of Law (maintains the ruleset) and Minitruth for the  
Ministry of Truth (now called the Oracle). And, of course, the  
hypothetical Miniminimin, who would have been the smallest minister  
in charge of the Ministry that handled mini-players (except mini- 
players were voted down).
