IRS payment site crashes hours before Tax Day filing deadline

What a coincidence that the IRS website goes down after "Vlad" (reference from Our Dear Leader, The One, Barack Hussein Obama (mmm, mmm, mmm...)) says there will be "consequences" for the attack on the Syrian chemical weapon sites.

Anyone believe in coincidences?

    My Paranoia runs deep and I don't even take the evil weed. If the IRS site can crash then it can also be hacked just like the thousands of other WWW sites have been. We should all have the Right to Opt out of any web based on line info sharing. As it is now all of your medical records are on line and any sharp computer hacker can probably find any of your most private info because all of it is floating around out here unprotected.
    Filing your taxes should be as simple as 1, 2, 3. Your W2 says you made $100K, you are in a 20% tax bracket then your tax is $20K. We could save a ton of money just by putting the IRS, tax accountants and lawyers right out of business. Let them all go get a real job.

    More likely a result of a rush to put in place the new rules for the tax code changes. The developer probably didn't perform sufficient regression testing to make sure the upgrade didn't conflict with old code.
