It's only a few eggheads wearing pocket protectors who--in their frequent hitting of the crack pipe-- insist that IPV6 is any kind of widespread, ubiquitous standard and the "few people" still using IPV4 are somehow antiquated and backwards.

Dude, we ran out of IPv4 addresses, there is no way to maintain IPv4
internet any further and it was late to switch years ago.

Besides, nobody forces you to allow traffic from outside to your local
computing resources even on IPv6.
