I feel like there are names i see more often than others, but unlike you i think there's a 3rd group, the not-so-serious rule enforcers, who don't listen to the Useless Comment Chains, arent always serious but overall decent users. I feel likr i fit into that. We're here to discuss cs and have fun, after all.
On fame: there are some users i have respect for, because they're open for discussions and stay respectful. The creator of this thread for example, but i think the fame for me is a huge grey area, some people notice me and remember my name, but with 3k comments i do not consider myself someone in the HLTV hall of fame :D
