Subject: IPv6 version of www.qwest.com/www.centurylink.com has been
down for 10 days

The IPv6 version of www.qwest.com has been down for 10 days.  Wget
shows a
301 to www.centurylink.com, but that also fails.  Emails to the nocs at
companies have gone unanswered.  Unless HE is deployed in a web
this behavior leads to a bad end-user experience.

If anyone can prod either of these two companies that would be much


It seems that any IPv6 efforts by organisations are best effort at most with of course some notable exceptions who seem 
to offer a really very good service (HE for example). It's starting to get to a point now, I think, that some end users 
have IPv6 (Andrews and Arnold have offered IPv6 for years) and issues such as these are just going to start to give 
IPv6 a bad name in the eyes of consumers.

It'd really suck for end users to start actively avoiding IPv6 connectivity because it keeps breaking and for 
organisations that have active AAAA records to break peoples connectivity to their resources.
