It matters not that you claim these isses are not 'shared by others' - they are experienced routinely by others, and it's growing worse as more 'services' are transitioned to 'v6' but then the attendant support such as monitoring and operational knowledge/experience hasn't caught up and those transitioned services fail on v6 silently for long periods of time. That is the majority of the v6 world today and it's useless to claim otherwise.

Permit me to rephrase….

…not experienced by those with functioning networks…

That is… It is not an inherent problem in the protocol, but rather a local misconfiguration  in those networks experiencing these problems.

There is sufficient evidence to back this up as the symptoms describe well known problems with well known solutions. The choice of particular network operators to complain about IPv6 being broken rather than research and apply those well known solutions is, in fact, a problem with those operators and not a problem with IPv6.
