A lot of baby anarchists go ML after they read Lenin and Stalin and Mao and realize they like authority, actually.

I think that has to do with an emphasis on eliminating the state and capitalism over eliminating authority itself in introductory anarchist material. Chomsky's cool and all, but he's more socialist than anarchist and anarcho-communism is just communism without the associated baggage. Both of these also happen to be really popular introductions to anarchism, at least in the US.
