I don't know where you got this from.   Honest's point is that there is NO
correlation between IPv4 depletion and IPv6 uptake i.e that you and Owen
have opinions that are not supported by evidence or data

Perhaps because she was bemused at the lack of understanding?

No I don't. She provided an interpretation of the dataset which she argues
is at odds with your opinions.  From what I can see, she is correct.

It is up to you to defend your position with some data or substantiate an
argument from what she has provided.
