I tried to give Slashdot the hint some 11+ years ago...

They still didn't get that hint... then again slashdot is way passed its
prime. But even sites like Reddit don't have AAAAs.

I guess now that it is 2014 and the address space is really as good as
gone some sites will finally start buying IPv6 enabled equipment and
start learning what the problems might be in their codebase, router
equipment and most expensively: staff training.

Oh well, they can't claim they where not told anything...
