Yesterday, while logged in via IE I could upvote comments, posts, and questions. This morning, that functionality is gone. Are they REMOVING functionality? Is S.E./S.O. Inc. actively changing the codebase in a way designed specifically to cause issues with a browser they don't support, or is it a side-effect of some other change? I am not using this ...

Yes! I share your pain due to work IT policies. A good example of how this can be done is Github, which has a similar message with a helpful "Ignore" button. This is a great compromise:

None specifically, yet. It's more a culmination of features that have been added over time that have been building up a lot of IE-specific clutter in our CSS and JavaScript and blocking other specific features that we simply cannot build while still supporting IE. For example, you might have seen this pull request pop up on Stacks recently. We also could not ...

As of early November 2019, support for IE 11 has been dropped from SE's official compatibility matrix. Edge is still supported, though I guess in 6-8 weeks I might ask about Edge (EdgeHTML) support in the era of everything being blink-based... if I'm feeling cheeky.
