Internet engineers tear into United Nations' plan to move us all to IPv6

"UN has pretty much been crippled by politics and made meaningless for a long time."

I prefer that country reps bang gavels with their shoes and rave on endlessly in a debating chamber than get into shooting wars with each other over a perceived insult over aunt esmerelda's waist size.

At that (as with the EU), the UN has been a qualified success - yes there are still conflicts but the number of them is lower and they tend to be resolved quicker than in centuries gone by.
