I noticed MangaDex has no IPv6 support. This would be really useful, especially when on cellular.

Yep. Would be great if we could use IPv6, unfortunately every ISP out there decided to lease completely fucking random prefix sizes to their customers, so if we did we'd have to base our defenses around /48 which would cause the same exact issue.
If you're involved in the networking world, please be the voice of sites like us which aren't hiding behind CF but don't have unlimited network/compute capacity to eat any attack people throw at us like the tech giants can

Until then, we'll keep pretending CGNAT isn't a thing and look past IPv6, because that's the only way to safely shower the regular DDoS attacks we receive

I hate to say this since this is likely very obvious, but aren’t IPv6 firewalls a thing? I had to fight that when trying to expose my server to IPv6

Ah, I think I see the problem, which is that DDOS mitigation is impossible since the attacker can just keep on rotating their IP?
