It should not make any difference whether you call them donations or not. They are selling virtual currency which isn't connected to Diablo 2, and there's nothing illegal about that.
But, thats the key, they are NOT "Selling" anything. You Donate and as a bonus or perk you also get some TG.
Words matter. Especially in legal context. Just because the end result comes out the same doesn't mean the means by which you get there will be the same. And it makes all the difference they function from "Donations" instead of "Sales". Two totally different things.
Again this mod (And others like it) is one of the veins of this game after all this time. I dont think Blizzard wants the terrible press of a tidal wave of a shit storm that would come if they were to try and fuck with this Mod. Would be like Shooting your own dog for coming back with the stick when you threw it.. And as long as people play D2 in any capacity that means copies will still sell. Blizz loses nothing as it stands only gain.
