prediction alphabet and youtube views to go down.

I like some channels (my blog) and despite me not having a facebook account for over five years means google and you tube are now becoming rare visits for me as well.

If democrat/communist facebook and google do not like off plantation thinking then i am happy to not visit there sites.

Despite google forcing cnn on people as preferred content means they visit alphabet but not play videos from cnn so that diminishes the youtube experience.

I have never seen a cnn youtube video on youtube, if i wanted to visit cnn why am deemed  too dumb to not visit a website they run?

If you want youtube to be a be a happy place with cats playing as the sole means of ‘user’ content great dont expect me to watch it.

Other video streamers exist and guess where i go and i seem to visit those sites first resulting in a loss of page views for our comrades in silicon valley.

I think the era of google is over and the beginning of something else will be starting soon.  Put simply youtube’s ideology means its not a mainstream view of america.   Have a think on that.

where are the ipv6 email relay testers and sasl [password] bots

guess who this person is

Where are they, it seems only ipv4 people do them.  Sure it is early days and most people are using a big email provider and maybe ipv6 if they have a more modern mobile phone.

Its rather nice ipv6 if quiet compared to ipv4.

In fact nobody seems to use ipv6 and yes we do send and receive ipv6 mail unless your nerdy or a few specific internet behemoths .

ipv6 on postfix

Works, although it does feel a little incoherent setup wise it [] sometimes required and not required, and having access to reverse dns means i can mail google in ipv6, your experience might be different (not here) than the zoo’s

Don’t forget about spf records

Being ipv6 is very mostly silicon valley based (not amazon) i was surprised that some try and abuse ipv6 and the domain name system

Domain unknown senders
frostystoo.default.scharles.uk0.bigv.io[2001:41c8:51:770:fcff:ff:fe00:435c]:<secrppl*3*@appslconfg.com>:

Although we do see them trying this from ipv4 too

No damage was done and the ipv6 and ipv4 protocol matched the fake domain.

Ipv6 accounts for 25% of dns traffic and not many ipv6 mx entries so 1% of email traffic unless you email gmail all the time.

back to opendmarc reporting

Covered here and there (both my blog) with ipv6 i decided to have another go at reporting with extra hosts available with ipv6.

I kept the importer running even if reports where not being sent but with ipv6 and ipv4 mail servers dmarc reporting remains stubbornly ipv4 based.

Not all is well with dmarc reporting and auto responders with spam getting sent to dmarc inboxes and bar the big providers nobody seems to take dmarc reporting seriously.

Oh well

ipv6 ‘washing’

So you have heard of green washing – meet ipv6 washing – the zoo has partial ipv6 so the brown thing should say 6 but instead says 4.  Ipv6 is not easy and a work in progress but at least the monkey house has some ipv6.

I laughed the more you know it gets cringeworthy fast and how dare you not use ipv6.

ipv6 in the wild now.

Since enabling ipv6 its been interesting to see who uses what as i wonder about.   The mainstream media seem glued to ipv4, and sites like wordpress and amazon have not taken the plunge.

I guess journalists also dont care that ipv6 cannot get there  fake  news (my blog) natively.

Overall i have no problems unless the site has an configured ipv6 thing on but nobody is at home on ipv6.

Big firms (not amazon) seem to have it, webhosters are spotty with ipv6 so its not really here in a big way yet for the mainstream.

The zoo has ipv6 servers finally working but that is another days posting.

αδιάκριτος and bad geoip

The monkey house changed isp and  expected some probing and i was surprised that this greek, Russian user beat the chinese.

1424 GR , 92.118.37.70

They where logged and reported and really deserve an honourable mention here.

Since my geoip is out of date it also throws a lot of other users out of being correct.

1400 + attempts is impressive.
