They censor.

Considering that Google is likely the largest provider that actually supports IPv6 (as Amazon AWS doesn't even fully support it yet across all of their services), this is a patently false statement. Also, "they censor" does not mean what you seem to think it means here.

The problem, as far as things seem to go, is that malicious actors are making use of HE's tunnelbroker service, and Google's viewpoint is likely that it's easier to tarpit (by way of reCAPTCHA, in this case) 2001:470::/32 than to play whack-a-mole.

It's in no way dissimilar to how practically every known Tor exit node is also similarly hit with a tarpit, if not outright blocked by some services - in order to block bad actors. That's not censorship, that's network management.

With respect to persons abusing HE.net's IPv6 TunnelBroker service, this is an issue that HE.net needs to resolve. The problem is that their absolute silence on this forum for months has been deafening; and if their interactions - or rather lack thereof - on this board given that this thread alone has been going since May are any indication of the response they've probably given to Google, then it is no wonder that Google took such an action. We all get to feel the ramifications of that.

Side note, for anyone running their own DNS, or who wants to disable IPv6 to Google, either of these two comments will help:

They simply block huge ranges of addresses they don't like - without a reason.
I switched to another search engine - not only because of that.
Other Google Services seem to work.

well, it took mere 2 months for this to start all over again. Just recaptcha for now, full ban will follow probably again. Worked fine just 12 hours ago.

Anyone else seeing problems? When I try and edit a zone it just redirects me back to the front page of dns.he.net.

Questions & Answers / Singapore tunnelbroker server ...
Last post by machbot - August 25, 2023, 06:47:47 AM
The ping to HE's Singapore tunnelbroker server has been really inconsistent for the past few days. MTR results showed the lag spike to be at the tunnelbroker server, so far it doesn't seem like it's an issue with my ISP but I'm not ruling it out yet.

Running mtr  -w -c 15 -i 1 216.218.221.42:

Start: 2023-08-25T21:32:34+0800

MTR when ping to the tunnelbroker server isn't spiking
