[I enjoyed reading this piece by Daniel Pittman, quoted with permission]

IPv4 exhaustion is just the current part of the natural cycle of rising and falling levels of IPv4 address usage. Besides, many scientists see a significant correlation between sunspot activity and IPv4 consumption.

"The attempts of IPv6 supporters to bolster the myth of human-induced IPv4 exhaustion is downright immoral." Philip Stott, Professor of Bio-geog-ip-ography, University of London

Besides, IPv4 exhaustion is just a theory. It isn't even, like, a real fact or anything. Plenty of scientists believe that there are vast untapped reserves of IPv4 address space lying idle, just waiting for improved routing techniques to release them on the world.

"An IETF IPv4 exhaustion conference in Poland is about to get a surprise from 650 leading scientists who scoff at doomsday reports of man-made IPv4 exhaustion --€“ labeling them variously a lie, a hoax and part of a new religion."
