    Because they are. One is a noun and one is a verb.

    Well both are a noun and a verb but 90% of the time that rule will get you where you need to go.

    The same word can have different meanings or be a noun and a verb. I just don’t understand why they couldn’t do that for these words

    I’d say you have a special affect that is especially effective

    They're both nouns and they're both verbs.
    Because they're different. You can effect an affect and affect an effect. Not the same phrase. You can say thank you and you can say thanks -- but you cannot say thanks you. I don't know why. I didn't make up the rules.
