[arin-ppml] IPV6, Not yet (OT)

I think the greater good is in providing complete and useful information.   
Naming the name might put it in an archive but "some guy told me some vendor  
with some switch doesn't support v6" doesn't do anyone any good.

Well, here is a video of a Transition Networks guy
saying at least one of their Ethernet switches is IPv6
capable:

Now in answer to your other question as to why people
don't name names, it is because there is a saying among marketing folks:

"bad news is better than NO news"

I've also heard it expressed:

"good news is good, but bad news is also good!"

Think for a moment that this list is archived.  So a web robot
will be crawling the archive sooner or later and come across
the vendor name.  That will give the vendor a boost in the
search engines.  So by publicly naming the vendor, you
probably help them as much as you harm them.

You should also keep in mind the old adage about sales
and marketing people:

"When do you know when a marketing or sales person is lying?"

"When their lips are moving!" ;-)
