CM is about riding bikes and that's it? If that was the case, people would ride their bikes from Union Square in New York, not circle in intersections, not taunt cops, and not generally act like jerks.

There are tons of organized rides throughout the city on any given weekend. If the idea of CM is, as you say it, to "come together and ride bikes," then it's a message lost on the participants.

All the CM rides do, in this city, is inflame drivers against cyclists. We preach to the choir here, folks. You ain't going nowhere advocacy-wise if you're pissing the people you want to respect you off. Joining an organization like TA or lobbying your local elected officials does a hell of a lot more than looping a crosswalk.
