With marketing campaigns like these, no consumer will want to use IPv6, if it becomes associated with privacy problems.

It is, of course, totally irrelevant whether the reporting is factually correct or even based on real IPv6 issues or not, this is how public opinion is formed. 

The only takeaway from this to a non-technical user is that IPv6 is bad and the correct solution is to turn it off.
