Well I guess it can only go so far, but the meteoric rise has turned into a meteoric fall. I played my rated game today. I gave three stones to a 9k and after that loss I dropped another game to hit 7k, which I hope is as low as it goes.
I look forward to the time when I don't change rank with every game I play, win or loss. That should happen soon as I add to the data the server has to work with.
