comment What should we tell our unsupported IE6 users?
@David Individuals; most of our IE6 traffic is on weekdays, strongly indicating that it's people browsing at work; I agree that this is probably outside of their control. But that means it's all the more important to get this message right.

Serious data loss is not a risk in our case... it's an alternate view of our data. It's seriously broken in the next version; some transparency problem is making most of the screen look blue. So there's really very little risk that someone could be harmed by our non-functionality in IE6.

comment What should we tell our unsupported IE6 users?
Note that this question is not about whether we should or should not desupport IE6. We know all about progressive enhancement. Most of our web site works just fine in IE6, but the site also has a complex AJAX web app; we no longer feel that it's worth the time to fix the web app for a tiny minority of our users. They can still access the information our site via an HTML site map and, of course, Google. I will downvote answers proposing that we fix the webapp for IE6. We've made our decision.
