Nope… I was suggesting USG stop buying anything from any company with a website not usable from a v6 only network.

I know that it’s common place these days to simply expect that everyone is out for themselves. Believe it or not, I actually want to see the internet progress
and move beyond IPv4. I want to see the end-to-end model restored and see a world where the applications that are possible in that environment can come
to fruition.

Well, that’s the rub, right… As long as we are shackled by these bonds to a world of consumer NAT and address shortage, we’ll never see the improvements that are possible in an unshackled world.

That’s why I want to see the shackles removed and the net opened to new possibilities. Unfortunately, there’s a remarkably vocal resistance to freedom among the oppressed that I have difficulty understanding.
