Dark matter might be amassed slower than ordinary matter though because it's not slowed down by the accretion disk and similar processes that get rid of momentum. IOW, a particle has to be headed directly into the event horizon, otherwise it'll miss and continue to orbit.

If it's not in the computer, it doesn't exist.
