Can you stop support for IE 6 when designing web sites

Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) has been realesed by Microsft recently and IE 7 was there for sometime now.
Does this mean that we can stop support for IE 6 when we design web sites.
IE 6 has many bugs that make web developer's life a living hell.
Sadly we cannot stop support since majority of people still use IE 6.
According to StatCounter Global Stats 24.22% users all around the world use IE6 (01 Jul 2008 to 17 Apr 2009).

  1. However, those users will be forced to update their browsers (if only for their own good) if more and more websites refuse to cater to ancient and pretty much useless software.

    I'm fairly over making compromises to support software that is buggy, insecure and refuses to abide by W3 standards.
