its designed behavior... so people around you can't see your passwords.

Canada eh
Depends on the server. it may not allow anonymous logins. A security feature of a lot of ftpd's is to not tell a user that the username is invalid, thereby not confirming anything about potential usernames a would be cracker could use.
