I never requested IPv6 space personally. I work with routing, not with LIR

We got our current block in 2000 (or earlier, I don't know for sure, but
2000 at the latest). So yes, we didn't know what we were doing back then.
Then again, I'd say nobody knew back then.

The world tends to change in 7 years. You seem to like bashing people for
not knowing future policy and changes 7 year ahead of time, which I think
it quite sad.
