Hate is a strong word, but Q has never ranked very highly on my list of liked characters. He was alright in TNG and (like the Borg) overused in VOY. But his appearance in DS9 is probably his best.
Even Q knows better than having Benji go Sisko on his ass, one punch and he was never seen of again on the station. If only Janeway had tried punching him.
Wasn't Q only used like 3 times in Voyager, and the third time it was mostly his son? I wouldn't call that "overused".
