I have a different take on it -
If one is "thruhiking", then one must be a "thruhiker". Otherwise one would not be thruhiking.
When one finishes, then one is technically an "ex-thruhiker".
Unless, like me, one's mind never leaves the Trail. In which case, one is always a thruhiker.
But keep in mind that, as one of my co-workers (for 25 years) once said - I'm different. :)
Of course, YMMV.
All these complicated discussions are gonna give me a headache.
