I propose that ARIN stops spending time and resources trying to shove IPv6 down my throat. It is not working with me, and it is not working with many others.

Besides that, I have supported the creation of IPv6 PI, the handling of the Nortel / Microsoft thing, the Registered Transfer Facilitators, and the latest development with the Afrinic thing. I am not RIR-shopping. Yet.

This is flat out biased. Dual-stacking for 20 years has not done anything but cost money.
I oppose ARIN promoting IPv6. ARIN should be neutral in the matter.
