One data point: I don't consider "avoid riding in groups" to be insulting. It's just good safety advice.
Taking up slack means 2 things.
1, Accelerated wear on pads (no one is so good as to take up the slack but never touch pads to discs with absolute accuracy). For old cable style brakes, you adjust the slack so you don't have to "take it up".
2. You are following too damned close if you think that it's that important.
2a. It's the street (not the track).
Ridden wet. Put up hard.
