The gas posts have a smaller "lip", as compared to the liquid posts.

From the pic above, it looks like the center one is actually a liquid post.

Use water and clean your posts and your ball valves. They do get sticky over time. I have a few that are tough to get on and off, just means a good seal ... i guess.

Nope, just a gas post for a different brand/style of ball lock keg.

They're referring to the groove cut into the points on the hex nut. All three of those pictured are gas in posts.

I also have a post on one of my kegs that is an absolute PITA to get connected to. If you check and they are the proper posts and connectors, try using a little extra keg lube.

I assume you checked and made sure that the post is not dinged up or has any burrs or rough places. These kegs were definitely not handled with kid gloves in their past lives and may have some problems.
