Whenever I'm commenting on someone's opinion and am trying to mention asker, so @Asker , it sometimes ends up mentioning some random person named Asker.
They are a deactivated xper 3, but it is just a bit annoying I'm constantly mentioning someone else besides asker. I know the real asker gets a notification anyway for the comment, but it still grinds my gears to see this happening.
Am I alone in this feeling?

You shouldn't mention @asker or @opinion owner. They are (were) in fact, users of the site. Most of the people mention @asker and the new users see and follow their activity and that's why a lot of people are misled that we should mention @asker.
Whenever you will post anything on the question, the asker will get the notification.
So, you should write it simply as
Asker - [the message]
(Without the @ sign)
