Talk to the trade press, i.e. write emails to editors or columnists at 
your favorite network or internet publications. That is the only way to 
reach a significant fraction of the people who have built filtering into 
firewalls, VPN gateways, system admin software etc.

The implication of this is that we have already almost run out of IPv4 
address space because the rest of the former Class A space is tainted and 
unusable on the global Internet.

IPv6 anyone?
