Big ships take time to turn.  The last I checked, the Internet is the 
largest and most complex technology system on the planet.  You will be 
able to look out the window, however, and see exactly nobody using horse 
drawn carriages anymore.  Further, your point that IPv6 has not been 
delivered is compeletely false.  It is a fully functional protocol, 
deployed in the real world, for real work.  It solves real problems 
that many people have.

You are right about one thing:  you have purposefully made serious effort 
to damage IPv6 deployment, for reasons only you know.  Further, your "i 
told you so"'s and braggadocious self-aggrandizement have no place in this 
discussion, IMHO.
