The proprietary driver for my network card doesn't support IPv6. There is a free software driver for it, but the vendor has been using cryptographic techniques to kneecap it and force people to use their proprietary driver instead. I only use IPv4 so this isn't really a big deal to me.

But a lot of people are talking about IPv6, and I feel left out. So I've decided to send a bunch of angry emails to the maintainers of the IPv6 stack in the Linux kernel. They tell me it's the vendor's problem, so I made up a bunch of misinformation about how broken IPv6 on Linux is and started spreading it around the internet. Any time I hear about new IPv6-only technology like Yggdrasil or cjdns I make my way to the comment threads to talk shit about IPv6.

Wait, no, of course I don't do that, because I'm a fucking adult

I mean, the tech isn't bad. It's just all of the marketing that spoils everything.

ProtonMail, you don't need to be 100% secure in all situations no matter what. But you really need to explain better to your users what security guarantees you provide.
