The thing about the IPv4 address block problem is that people don't see what the problem is. Oh, there are no more new addresses? Okay. So there won't be any more NEW websites? Huh.
*goes to Facebook*
I mean, it'd be one thing if we said "IPv4 is going to crash in three months and nothing will work on the Internet." That'd get people moving.
But no new websites, and other assorted shit? But we do get to keep our current allotment of devices and websites? Okay, whatever.
In the end, the ISPs are to blame for this. They need to just fucking FORCE this shit.
You can't force this shit though. Priority in protocol choice is IPv4 and then IPv6 and then IPv6-Toledo. IPv4 can literally never not be supported. You'd break billions of devices over night.
