Sitting pretty in IPv4 land? Look, you're gonna have to talk to IPv6 at some stage

Re: Never!

With /horrible/ things like uPNP on consumer routers (which more often than not implement it and other things badly or incorrectly), it's not NAT that really provides the real security, it's the firewall (which on every consumer router I've seen in the last decade is turned on by default).

And just to reiterate, at no point did I claim that NAT is not possible with IPv6. It's just not necessary.
