Tired of Fracking around because of Internet Explorer

So, I was just looking at a form that worked well under Firefox. It looks like crap under IE 6/7/8 -- all the select boxes are mutilated and there's no accessible way to fix it.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, you tell me IE is used by everyone and his brother, so I've got to make my Web pages look good in IE. But I'm not going to. See my previous post. This qualifies as completely pointless effort. I'm not going to change my content just to accommodate the gratuitously introduced defects of an antiquated product.

If a Web page looks like crap because I didn't design it well, I'll fix it. Otherwise, if it looks like crap because the user insists on using the crappiest browser on the Web to view it, I don't have the time to waste. I'm not going to keep trying to teach this pig to sing.

I refuse.
