Everyone is already aware of his opinion, and most of us have roundly rejected it several times.
Not only that, but we know that he's not offering it as a suggestion for the improvement of the site. He doesn't like downvoting because he's spent years alienating and aggravating the members of the site, and now that people are fed up and fighting back with the only weapon they have -- downvotes -- he doesn't like it. He wants to shut down that method of criticism.
I happen to agree with him on anonymous posting. I don't care for it, though for very different reasons than he. But it's part of the site, so I accept it and move on. I don't post numerous screeds against it, repeating the same arguments over and over even after people beg me to stop. I don't dedicate myself to cluttering up the site with nonsense out of spite because it doesn't follow my wishes. I don't start fights with other members over it and turn them into lifelong grudge matches. He does.
