It would (perhaps) be a good idea to place an informative page on the tswiki
on what the ISBNdb.com
is, as well as this issue and the proposed resolution.
If you make a category for that page as well as affected projects, we'd have
a central location to check to see what tools need to be updated.

Subject: [Toolserver-l] To the owners of tools using ISBNdb API
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
I have spoken to Andrew Maltsev from ISBNdb.com
Toolserver's IP was blocked for our API, because we were using
different accounts, which is against their policy. I explained that to
him, that we are different users, that is why all the requests come
from the one and only IP. He is very polite and understanding, already
re-enabled my ISBNdb key. And here goes my announcement:
If you do have a tool that uses ISBNdb API, contact Andrew Maltsev at
support(a)isbndb.com and tell him about you being the Toolserver user,
about your tool and ask him to re-enable your key.
So far I have seen that Magnus Manke and User:? (gradzeichen) are
using ISBNdb API. Anyone else, who is using the API, pwetty pwetty
pwease, contact their support. I think, we prolly can make some bigger
collaboration with their project for the good of all of us. I don't
have any ideas so far, so brainstorm could be useful. :)
Thanks in advance!
