I couldn't agree more.

For nearly 2 years I periodically raised ruckuses with one of
my upstreams.  (you know who you are)

Then one day, partly as a result of my bitching,
they started offering native IPv6.  It turned out I wasn't the
only one of their customers bitching.

You see, I -helped- them because now they have it done and out
of the way.

Now, I just gotta finish the work on my own gateway devices (which
I found to my annoyance, have some issues)

Persistence works.
