This is probably because you've spent a LOT of time on chans where this sort of thing is how it operates. I haven't. I don't come from places like 4chan or 8chan. The only experience I have with sites like these are ones like this where people use names, so it's not something I know how to do very well.
If I were on a chan that as primarily anonymous focused, I could understand people wanting me to adapt to fit the way the site is supposed to function and I'd not complain about it. But since the majority of this site uses a name, those that choose to reamain anonymous are the outliers and while we don't force you to use a name here, the predominant focus is having one, so you can't expect everyone else to adopt the way you do things on other chans simply because it's easier for you.
The fact of the matter is that the majority of people on this site use names. If you choose to post anonymously you're going to get confused for other people, it's just part of what comes with being anonymous. If that bothers you, just use a name, because obviously you want people to be able to identify you anyway since you get upset when people cannot. So I don't see why you don't just do it and make it easier on everybody. It's your choice and I'm not going to force you, I'm just saying if you post anon, and someone confuses you for another anon, that is not their problem and it comes with the territory. If you don't like it, you know how to fix it. If you don't want to, you'll just have to learn to live with it.
Also, that whole idea that people only focus on who is saying something and not on what is being said is complete bullshit. No one does that here. I'm good friends with Mikie and Mk17 and as you can see, I don't blindly agree with everything they say, and we do argue and our arguments even get heated at times, but we respect each other enough to not take it personally. So if you're scared that having a name is going to make people judge you before you even get a chance to speak, don't. It's an irrational fear that is spread amongst anonymous communities just to make them scared of using a name.
There is no popularity contest here, and no one gets special treatment.
