Il razzismo di SixXS

Come forse saprete fornisco gratuitamente mail del tipo @archlinux.info e @archlinux.net a chiunque ne faccia richiesta.

Per essere al passo coi tempi volevo aggiungere il supporto a IPv6 e quindi ho chiesto al "fornitore" di IPv6 migliore che esista (SixXS per l'appunto) di poter avere un tunnel IPv6 verso il server che gestisce le email.

La risposta che ho ricevuto è stata alquanto shockante:
[SixXS] Tunnel Rejection T154429 (TMR3-SIXXS)

Hi,
this server is a VPS hosted in Maidenhead, Berkshire, UK (like I wrote
in the tunnel request).

Actually I offer free emails (@archlinux.info) to archlinux users and
I'd like to offer IPv6 access too (my operator only have IPv4).

I think it's a fair usage and I choose your POP since it's the POP with
less latency from the VPS:
64 bytes from gblon02.sixxs.net (77.75.104.126): icmp_seq=1 ttl=51
time=1.60 ms

Thank you

Due to the enduring amounts of abuse from your fellow Italian citizens
we do not terminate tunnels of Italian users outside of Italy.

Greets,

Inutile dire che mi sono sentito "ghettizzato" e "discriminato" in quanto Italiano.
Alla fine ho ripiegato ad usare un altro tunnel fornito da Hurricane Electric che, nonostante sia più lento, almeno non ha delle policy da denuncia...
