Lying and plagiarizing on an application to join the party seems par for the course for the world’s longest running Gresham’s law experiment.

in economics, Gresham’s law is a monetary principle stating that “bad money drives out good”. For example, if there are two forms of commodity money in circulation, which are accepted by law as having similar face value, the more valuable commodity will disappear from circulation.[1][2]

 

but…. the bad [worthless] driving out the good [worthy] works with language and applications also.
