That doesn't mean lower scorers should be jealous or think badly of those that talk about scoring that highly and attend the most prestigious schools. Conversely, those at the bottom 50% of the class are akin to those that necessarily score sub 95 percentile on the LSAT and in both situations it is cruel and uncalled for to ridicule them.
The distinction is that your friend group when you're applying to LS is largely not going to consist of other people trying to get into LS. Obviously will depend on the person, and some people probably knew a lot more people applying to LS than I did, but if that's the case, you're probably back to a situation where you really shouldn't post anything about your school until you're attending and just updating your network, which no one can fault you for.
Also, on a separate note, I don't know what everyone else's schools are like, but at my school it would have been impossible not to be friends on FB with LS people. Probably a third of the class perfunctorily sent out friend requests to me in the first week, and I got about two a month after that. Declining these would have been a worse faux pas than posting LR.
