[Dnsmasq-discuss] Is there some way I can tell dnsmasq to give a negative reply to any IPv6 query?

My ISP does not support IPv6 at all.  Recently I have been having trouble connecting (web and/or ssh) to hosts outside of my local home LAN that have both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

For example:

    rbthomas at monk:~$ host www.google.com
    www.google.com has address 142.251.33.68
    www.google.com has IPv6 address 2607:f8b0:400a:806::2004
    rbthomas at monk:~$ wget www.google.com
    --2021-09-22 18:23:06--  http://www.google.com/
    Resolving www.google.com (www.google.com)... 2607:f8b0:400a:806::2004, 142.251.33.68
    Connecting to www.google.com (www.google.com)|2607:f8b0:400a:806::2004|:80... ^C


Is there some way I can tell dnsmasq to give a negative reply to any IPv6 query?

I'm using the debian dnsmasq package version 2.85-1

Thanks!
Rick
