I am not picking on you ToolGuy, just useing your post as a example so please don't take it personal.
Maybe I want to take it personal. You know I'm a glutton for attention.

But yeah, you're right. This is something that needs on-site advice from somebody who knows their stuff. I was wrong once and it could happen again.

Default Nope That is a weight bering post.

The post is holding a set of beams. If there is ever a joint don't take it out.
Get a professional to look at it soon, you have removed a bunch of wall and you also have to think about the shear value when you remove something.
Shear is the side to side strength in a wall. Basically a built in brace. If you do not have that...the whole house goes down like a house of cards.....no kidding.

Good luck.
