two reasons.

1. a game takes 5-7 hours to complete, and thats if everyone is snappy with their turns.

2. a certain trading glitch that allows people to steal your cities.

I wish you could post the glitch here :(

But I agree with the other here. I only play it with friends I know IRL. We usually do a voice chat and the game becomes secondary, we mostly just talk and drink virtually while casually finishing turns.

Because it's not very fun to play with strangers. It's mostly meant for single player, and the multiplayer is fun if you have a few friends and a ton of time.
