Yes the API is being shut off completely. Not just that simple
translation page most see. The Viewer uses the api so thats why it
effects the viewer and tons of other apps. Its not just about
monitization although I am sure it is part of it. The API is extremely
abused not just by Secondlife and I never said it was just SecondLife.
Also my suggestions are not to change Googles mind but to make our
code better so whoever we have to use in the future whether its Google
or another that we put less burden on them so that the service last
longer.

I personally think that Linden licencing the service from google would
be a very good solution. They may also be able to work with google to
make a better library and caching system.
