Spending time and energy complaining about unfairness, hordeing, FUD over 
the end of days, etc. isn't very productive.  Nobody's gonna buy anything 
at scalper prices which can be gotten for much less through normal means. 
An IP address provides you presence on the net.  It doesn't have to be an 
IPv4 address.  Some countries have already figured this out...
