I hate hats.
Fortunately, I was asked this on the front page of gaming so I didn't have to be bothered with it.
However, if I hate hats (not dislike, not mildly annoyed by the presence), then why am I being notified if I get one?
I also see them on the Gravatar on a person's profile page:
And I see their hat rack as well:

To reiterate, I hate hats, so why am I seeing them everywhere?
