One of the sites I built recently has a ton of backbone.js dynamic loading.

I tried to test it in IE 6, and the browser just immediately crashes. Not like an alert box, just an instant shut down!

In the past I would have started the unpleasant task of figuring that out and fixing it up, or perhaps detecting and redirecting to a more lightweight page.

This time I said screw it - I'm done with IE 6! Call me irresponsible or lazy or whatever you want but I'm just done with IE 6 and it feels great!

By the way YouTube shows a giant warning on their page if you view it with IE 6, saying that it won't be supported in 6 months.

I think you're within your right to ditch IE6. I don't even support IE7, users just get a chromeframe prompt.
