Misleading answers from Yahoo on Finance API - Yahoo please respond

Instead of getting the error yesterday on an http query of:

 

"Sorry, Unable to process request at this time -- error 999."

 

Now I am receiving this message:

 

"It has come to our attention that this service is being used in violation of the Yahoo Terms of Service. As such, the service is being discontinued. For all future markets and equities data research, please refer to finance.yahoo.com."

 

Does this mean that the service is permanently being shut down for everyone since someone violated the Yahoo Terms of Service?  Or is it being still looked at being fixed?

The former, it would appear. Time to look elsewhere I guess. What a sad end to a wonderful service.
