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.

When it is not necessary to make a decision, it is necessary not to make a decision.
