We are absolutely, definitively, completely and utterly out of IPv4 addresses, warns RIPE

That should be fine if you just add www; it will also work for "reads" of forums and search, but will not work for posting on forums (which is part of what we have yet to finish updating for full IPv6 support).

The image hosting domain, regmedia.co.uk, is also IPv6 and has been IPv6 for quite a while.

Forum posts which "fail" due to the poster having contacted forums using an IPv6 address will be rm -f until we can properly support IPv6. Not the user; the post. I'm not the BOFH, I don't rm -f people.
