The wording was pointlessly presumptive. Many HN users likely hate nothing about it -- hence they're still using it.

A better formulation would've been something like, "What one change would improve HN most?"

But even then, the topic has been beaten to death. If you don't like HN, it's easy to access the data to create your own UI. Many others have already.

That implies the UI is the problem - and that is likely not the case. Upper management and community dynamics are the larger issues - and cannot be fixed by simply reskinning the data.

"What do you like least about HN?"
