This entire thread confuses me.  Are there normal home users who are being
blocked from Netflix because their ISP forces them through a HE VPN?  Or is
this massive thread just about a handful of geeks who think IPv6 is cool
and insist they be allowed to use it despite not having it natively?  I
could certainly understand ISP concerns that they are receiving user
complaints because they failed to provide native IPv6 (why not?), but
whining that you've managed to create a non-standard network setup doesn't
work with some providers seems a bit silly.
