As far as I'm concerned, they are simply the male and female terms for magic user, like in Harry Potter. Mage is a gender-neutral term and warlock refers to a dark (though not necessarily evil) mage. Sorcerer and Sorceress are "higher-level" mages.
It is nothing but a label that someone claims or others put on that person to identify their path from the more broad label of being a practitioner. I myself do no claim a path, but I guess I would be closer to the label wizard due to the fact that I study and learn. I am currently working on my 9th 400 page book of shadow, trying to reclaim the knowledge that my family had last generation before we went our seperate ways.

Faithseeker, no offense but I have to disagree with you on the whole Warlock thing. The word Wrlock is defined as, "truth twister"; or "oath breaker." If someone were to call you a Warlock, they would be calling you a liar.
