If what Lotek fails, I suggest a big Vice-Grip, a couple of strong buddies and a lot of twisting motion.
We had a tri-bike in the shop that had a corroded post in it. Primarily due to the swim (in salt h20) and then the bike portion, and the guy NEVER washed off his bike. We soaked it with PB Blaster for days, to no avail. Finally, we cut the seatpost off about 2" above where it came out of the frame. We then took a hacksaw blad and made a verticle cut on one side of the inside of the post. This cut was made full length, and it was done VERY carefully as to not damage the frame. Once the cut was made, we grabbed on side with some vice-grips and curled it inside the other.
This is a last resort method and a real PITA.
