This is getting silly. If you can't point to anything specific and
constructive that you would actually change to improve LWN.net
other than »use rounded corners, they're cool« this must mean that the
site isn't so bad to begin with, so I'll politely and respectfully suggest
you shut up.

Get a good web designer that knows modern web design (page layout, usability, style, colours, logo etc.) and have him/her improve the crappy first impression this site makes. That may or may not include rounded corners. I don't know as I am not a web designer as I already mentioned and explained that that was just one tiny technical example, which still does not fit into your brain. All I know is that this sites design (unprofessional logo with green font, annoying flashy ads, black,red or blue text, grey and orange boxes, no advanced CSS etc.) undeniably makes a bad impression, which does not help anybody.
This doesn't have cost a lot. There are a lot of talented young web monkeys out there that don't charge a lot per hour. First thing though is to acknowledge that not everything is peachy.
