Comment Re:IP greater than 255 a good idea ... (Score 1) 1200

Actually that is intentional and well thought out. It prevents people from typing in that IP and trying to do something. When real phone numbers appeared on TV or in songs it was quite annoying for the person whose number that was. They are just trying to avoid similar inconveniences.

Why not just use private network IP addresses then? It's not like there aren't thousands to choose from. Most of the general public probably wouldn't know the difference, making it much more "realistic."
