Hacker News API not well designed (ycombinator.com)

HN has been a huge success story in my eyes. It's been in operational/maintenance mode for a decade and loaded with high traffic use.

Personally, I think getting worked up over the API is just absurd. It has served its purpose well.

Personally I thought this was awesome (It was referenced in one of the comments within the HN post):

HN has become the modern day 'todo' dev requirement.

I actually started and abandoned unfinished a Hacker News clone in Hack a while ago, and a client has always been vaguely on my todo list.

I wonder how many HN users have projects like that sitting somewhere.

I have one. I plan on plowing through it soon.
