What does it mean when a user is "retired"? How is that status assigned?

It means the user has voluntarily expelled themselves from the forum, never to return. Unless of course they get obscenely bored some days.

Spoilt my fun! I was going to refer them to the pilot episode of "The Prisoner." (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZUz88-xoqY) :p

The irony is that you link to a post that uses you as an example:

"vniow listed as 'retired'"

I thought it funny atleast. :)

Some greats have "unretired" in the past:

Evander Holyfield
Michael Jordan
et. al.

and more recently Brett Favre

I thought retired mean, gray hair, liver spots, baldness, hair growing out of strange places, social security, etc.

I suggest "retreaded", but for an entirely different set of circumstances.
