No problem, some are too confused, some are too pride. Actually in it's deep sense also not different. What ever can not be taken as atta, one naturally does not like to build on, so beings seach to nail on with in the five clinging aggregats, here saññā, to feel more secure, Nyom.

This kind of "anatta" how ever, is not understanding "anatta" but reaction in aversion. Vibhava-desire that arises.
