I haven't been around much in the last year so maybe I have missed something, but if nothing has changed I'm curious whether it will.
This site has been around for a long time and has a very good reputation, particularly for being trustworthy and safe. Arguably, one of the reasons for this is a long-standing policy against third-party programs and gold/item sellers. Even talking about the specifics of these things, like where to get them, whether they work etc., has been forbidden in the past.
While ad's from the goldsellers have always managed to sneak in (as I type this there are two ad's for D2 items on this page), I have been seeing more of them lately and am forced to wonder: does the existence of the RMAH impact this site's policy about gold/item sellers? Especially since the D3 trading forum essentially is an item/gold selling page.
Likewise, one of the top stories currently on the News links is about a third-party program and the article quite clearly quotes a Blizzard employee stating that the use of third-party programs is against the EULA. Having never used these sorts of things in D2 and not being a programmer, I don't see much of a difference between a maphack and this DDD thing. Don't get me wrong, I read the article and I know what the program does, but it's still a third-party program for use online.
How has this site's policies changed with D3?
