And now some people that don't anyone to see what I have to say about IPV6 are modding me troll. IPV6 people have some serious issues. In my opinion their behavior of modding down opinions against them should raise questions about their agenda. And perhaps my point is striking too close to home.
This post rated troll. I've been on slashdot for 13 years and have excellent karma. What we have here are IPV6 censors, not moderators.
As always, People who don't want anyone to see what I have to say about IPV6 mod my post down to hell. My wishes are that they go there too.
Post modded redundant and overrated (and there are no positive mods to be overrated)):
When IPV6 is what we have to work with, we will be swarmed by those bastard botnets with no way to block that many IP addresses that will be used to attack.
The IPV6 crowd pooh poohs this and says blocking IP addresses is not the answer. Well not for an established users, but for registration and spam posting it is the answer. Or was.
I will get off the internet before dealing with innumerable attack vectors from our botnet friends in Russia and China. The loss of my little sites will be no big loss. But everyone remaining will be inundated, and they won't be able to deal with it either.
Imo the botnet criminals have been trying to force the use of IPV6 by getting all new ranges of IPV4 allocated as soon as possible. Certainly that's what I've seen these last few years from logging spam attack IP addresses.
Rather than IPV6 globally and IPV4 internally, I think IPV6 should be what the countries that attack us, who just happen to have very large populations, can use for themselves. Do you have any idea how many IP address ranges we are attacked from in places like Latvia? Let them do their attacking with IPV6. Good riddance.
