You can encourage your friends to add their emails. The map is just fun,
it's already getting messed up because some people feel the need to move
other people's pins because it "blocks" them at the highest view level.

In a map with many people, it's just a fact that you'll be blocked at the
highest view level. When people actually care and zoom in closer, no one
blocks anyone. Only the most recent people to add will even be visible at
the highest level, and also, if people lack the skills to create and upload
a simple avatar, they probably deserve to be blocked anyway.  :)
