Looks like u completely ignored all the evidence people like myself was pointing out back then.
Tobi acted like a buffoon to conceal the fact that he was the leader monitoring the status of his organization while also having a more direct control of where his organization's plans were charted. Since Kishi established that, readers assumed that to be the case; it was a logical explanation.
A problem with Kakashi Gaiden being directly connected to the origin of the source known as the ideology behind Tobi's plans, is that Kishi left the tracks and any connection Obito has to the plot bone cold for hundreds of chapters. Besides the last few chapters, there was no build up to Obito... Even I, yes, one of the biggest damn critics of Tobi being Obito, came to terms with the idea that it was possible, but simply dismissed it because there's no fair reasoning behind it, other than they share the same hair style.
Obito being Tobi reminds me of a scenario where this guy from high school had a massive crush on this chick yet kept it secret like the most taboo of thoughts (but she may have slightly picked up on it, but shrugged it off with niceness), though 10 years later found it more appropriate to tell her how he felt back then and right now at the reunion. The chick's probably one or more of the following: married, has kids, divorced, going through a divorce, lesbian now, etc. Basically, she might have moved into a point of her life where the guy's confession means shit; unless he's an absolutely lucky muther fucker.
That's kind of like the fanbase's reaction. We've all forgotten about little, goofy, slightly annoying, honorable Obito. We've been exposed to so many developments without barely an inkling of interaction between Kakashi and Obito over the course of years and hundreds of chapters. Then all of a sudden, "hey guys, Tobi's Obito and has a bone to pick with Kakashi to boot."
