Re: Lies, damned lies, and statistics that don't lie.

Actually, there's a way for a device on a v4-only network (even behind NAT) to get v6: Teredo. Also, every v4 address has a /48 of v6 space tunnelled to it via a mechanism called 6to4.

For some reason, the existence of these protocols doesn't seem to stop people from complaining that they don't exist.
