So am I.  But I'm surprised 1918 space was used as well.  ANY v4 address will get typed into ping or a browser or something by someone if it is on TV.  How many corporations have 1918 space that their VPN'ed home users are about to abuse because of that?

Is 127.0.0.1 / ::1 the Internet version of "555"?  Or will "I hurt myself, so now I'm going to sue you" mean we can't even use that?
