after thinking about this more (heaven forbid) I've come to this conclusion.

Because of my earlier talk with RFL, I closely analyzed what happens during time dilation.

I think what happens is as the object starts to become closer and closer, time exponentially slows down. and because it slows down the amount of light decreases...

therefore at the same rate as it becomes infinitely close to the event horizon, the time, likewise, approaches infinity.As well, the light emitted from the object becomes infinitely dim (and infinitely red shifted).

But! that doesn't mean it has crossed the event horizon! Just has become infinitely close! So with that reasoning, how is it possible for black holes to "gain" mass relative to our reference frame? Is that just it? That the activity of black holes can be only observed from a reference identical to themselves?
