Then go a week with the Ghillie suit on and your name visible.  This way you can still look cool and not worry about having an advantage in PvP that you paid RL cash for.

What's the advantage again? Not being able to focus targets? 

Any good group can focus targets without having to know their name or their guild. Many people have their ghillie suit dyed vibrant colors, or some color, this makes it easier to call targets. Outside of that though, you can call class/location or ping who you're attempting to call out, exactly like Shanst said. You can also use a Marking Reagent or a Flare, both of which are available in-game for anyone to use. Anyone still whining about the ghillie suit is just whining about it because it's the cool thing to do, and they can.

For me best part about ghilie suit is that when im farming they dont know who i am. And since karma regneration is too slow i cant just kill everyone always on my farm spot, but often people attack me not knowing that they dont stand any chanses ; )

Well, guild name can tell you wether or not the target is overgeared.

Also, i'm not sure about this, but i think you don't see the small icon when they activate pvp mode (before going red). It can be useful sometimes.

Except when they go red, they start flashing like the red lights on a runway, and if you're in an area grinding with others around and not paying attention to your surroundings, that's on you. And I'm almost certain most people have pets in this game and should have a dog. Turn on his ability to put a big red laser from the sky down on pvp targets and the ghillie literally does nothing beneficial for you but hide your name. If you haven't spent a dime on this game, and spam r to pick up everything, I feel really sorry for you.

This is literally the only thing I wear my ghillie for, because being in a well known pvp guild people will try to flag on you and jump you just for your guild name. I only wear it when I'm farming up Karma and will wear my normal costume while grinding for exp or running around the world when I've got enough karma to slaughter them when they turn off their flag and V out.

My classic response. Get good. Or get glasses if you can't hit someone in a ghillie suit.

As an EX-Sorc
Killed my first Ranger today and I must say it was soooo much easier than with the sorc. 
Quite liked the fight was in control for most of it and of course I suck alot with the maewha atm. Can only get even easier.

I can afford to shell out a $30 one time purchase. Pretty sure most people can. All I did was offer multiple in-game ways to counter a ghillie suit, I didn't say it doesn't give a slight advantage. But there are ways built into the game to counteract the costume. 

Similar to what Shanst said, I'm KoS for quite a few people who're in guilds much larger than mine. I get attacked extremely frequently if I don't have a suit on. As much as I love having 4mil in gems shatter when I get assaulted by 4 people out of the blue, I'd rather avoid the pain by throwing on my ghillie and farming peacefully.

Ok but just to make it clear i wear it for the excact opposite reason. I want people to attack me and if i didnt wear it they would be much less likely to attack me.

I was not talking about going red.

But when you activate PK mode (alt + C) you got a small icon near your name BEFORE going red. So you know who is going to attack you.
