Like I was saying to someone privately, by pr0n I really meant whatever
app or service makes the most sense at the time. It could be gaming, it
could be Clubhouse, it could a crossword puzzle. Something, anything. We
know how to build online services that ordinary people see value in.
Extending that to have it delivered mostly over IPv6 is not a huge leap,
if all sides understood that the impetus was to promote IPv6 adoption.
But yes, short of that, patience is the only hope.
