A Swiss VM hosting provider has a technical blog post about how to kill IPv4 completely on FreeBSD. That is to say, turning it completely off, not just preferring IPv6. They then solicit concrete solutions describing, along with a proof of concept, how to turn IPv4 completely off in other operating systems and allowing them to communicate with IPv6 only.

    Current OS devs are neglecting their duty to prevent their systems being used to do evil, how long will we let them get away with not moderating the use of their service? An OS dev community which permits indiscriminate use of their OS is no different to bluecoat selling equipment indiscriminately.

    IPv6 is only a minor improvement in this direction, but stills fails to recognize the need for protocols to permit moderation and filtering as a core design goal.

    This is what happens when you allow Jews to infiltrate your repository. Some Jews, like Kissinger, are good. Others, no so much.

      There. FTFY.

    Can we substitute "governments" for "Current OS devs"? How about "gun manufacturers"? Or "facebook and twitter"?

    No, the rule is 'do no harm.'

    Not 'do nothing that could conceivably help someone else who might do harm later.'

    If troll: this is a poor attempt. A little too transparent. If not troll: you're crazier than a bat-shit milkshake with onions on top and about as enticing.
