Hmmm. Looks like i already voted (pretty sure that I didn't, but...)
I normally wait. I've always been under the impression that if you click on the "don't wait" link, that the search will end prematurely and I will not see ALL the results for the search. I think that is provided as an out for those that are a) impatient, 2) on a dial-up modem, c) used a generic search term that is pulling every post on the site (like searching for "HS" on homeseer ((pretty sure you can't as its only 2 letters, but you get the idea))), d) makes one feel like they are in control of their own destiny.
Then again, Electron does have a warped sense of humor
