While I somewhat agree with you, LSAC could just as easily shut down access until the scores are posted.

True, but what about the people that need to access their other services for applications, information, etc. ??  

Why favor obsessed people waiting for a test score over people already working on applications?

I left the page up in my browser and refreshed it probably every 30 minutes or so. When the server was crashing, I refreshed a few times in a 5 minute period and it came back. Then timed out again and I gave up. It is a timeout, not a 404 so it doesn't mean it is impossible to connect to or isn't found. Just too many people on the server.

I don't see the point in sitting and refreshing over and over again for a short period of time. It is very unlikely for the score to suddenly appear randomly by luck. What is that saying? A watched pot never boils? Meh, we know that isn't true but if we have been able to wait a few weeks for the results, a couple of hours wait won't make much of a difference.

Time to distract ourselves and wait for later tonight. :D Movie anyone?

I'm still at work (going on 13 hours) so I'm already distracted by that. At a law firm, no less - I guess this is what I'll be rewarded with by getting a good score.

Yeah, I agree, except that this surely is not the first time this has happened.  I am not criticizing LSAC by any means.  I know it is probably an insane amount of work to get these in, especially early.  But if they are concerned with the traffic, they had plenty of time to prepare for it if they were worried it would interfere with both score release and others who need LSAC services.

Going to bed knowing that my score will arrive sometime during the night would not be conducive to sleep.

Same. It would be very odd if they told us that score email date was today, and that we have a reportable score, but it didn't come.
