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.

    retransmission of IPv4 traffic is not a thing if your system doesn't have a 4 octet IP address. what is it you're not getting here sherlock? You're claiming the failure points existing in v6 leave in place the extra failure points of v4? I gotta ask - are you wearing velcro shoes (stupid people have a hard time w/ laces)? Does you not having laces on your short bus shoes mean you still have trouble with shoe laces, on your dummy shoes? I bet you do. I bet you do.

    Seriously, it's rare to find someone who keeps purposely drawing attention to their own idiocy. When you were a kid, did you ever shit your pants in the middle of a grocery store and start yelling it smells bad? I bet you did. I bet you did.

    You seem to have an unhealthy obsession with feces. I guess with a prick that tiny, you gotta get your jollies somehow.

      I'd say the person swallowing my shit with a ready and wide open mouth is the one with a feces obsession - you. I guess according to your logic we all have a shit obsession, since we shit daily. The person who keeps eating it though and coming back for more - an idiot who does not know the difference between NAT and a firewall, or between TCP and IP, and keeps talking about other people's genitals, just so those people can keep pointing out how dumb you are.

      You can talk about my dick and keep eating my shit all you want buddy. I get my jollies by pointing out you're on a tech site, know nothing about basic networking protocols, and keep coming back for people to point that out. Kid who has shit his pants yelling it smells. Now open up that mouth a little more for me, human toilet.

    Some of us are smart enough to ignore societal conventions and use velcro shoes because they save us time.

      undoing the velcro then putting it back takes less time than doing nothing? lemme axe you: do you think you're smart enough for shoelaces, or do other people think that also (if you know other people)?
