Yes, it is all EP GARBAGE! Time to look for a better social experience site or make one. Actually there is a site called "Meet Up" look at it.
Why so serious?
This is like any other social site. It's based on popularity, not accuracy. Relax and understand human nature.
Serious? Yes. EP is becoming content lame and boring, thanks to some of it's users.
People bring everything with them. Civilization is still a long way away.
MS? I think you have the wrong question. MS is a fatal genetic break down. It sucks and won't get much of a cure.
It leads to death. Its cause is genetic and there is no cure. It's extremely painful and you lose control of your own body. It's terrible stuff.
I don't add groups to add points or tokens. I rarely add friends.
