[ipv6hackers] the end is near (or for IPv6: the beginning)

I've tried to discuss the NAT issue with friends of mine before, and they
simply do not understand. NAT is not a security feature. Yes, you can get
some implicit "security" by using it, but why would you not simply configure
your firewall correctly?

Up until now, NAT has been a "security feature" for lazy people, who don't
want to take a few minutes to understand firewall configuration. Instead,
they waste their time dealing with NAT issues that they wouldn't have to
deal with if they would just accept that NAT is a hack.
