Very much agree

Disagree. IPv6 is meaningfully rolled out. Half or comcast and at&t subs
are observably on ipv6

And every (i think) iphone 7 ships with ipv6 default on from t-mobile,
sprint, T , and VZ.  Same can be said of samsung phones 2 years ago.

Now, if abc isp and xyz gaming company don't deploy ipv6, they have nobody
to blame but themselves. Many of us have moved on, but it is sad when
you all need help tweeking your cgn or need help finding an IPv4 broker.

I feel your pain. But don't say ipv6 is not deployed.  It is deployed, and
it carries more traffic than ipv4
