Adding GPS location to IPv6 header



WHAT???

Is this the extent to which This-List has DEGENERATED???

How dare you make such a horrendous accusation Sir?

You may NOT like what OP has proposed. I don't either for more reasons than one!

However, YOU are neither qualified NOR authorised to ask such an appallingly INSENSITIVE Question!

Your so called "Freedom-of-Speech" DOES NOT translate to Character-Assasination on this or any other forum!!

Follow me you ipdog? Find you own bitch to abuse. Don't do it here!!
