People put up with a lot of shit in Diablo 3 BECAUSE it's Diablo 3. Saying that the always online DRM will spread because of Diablo 3's success is jumping the gun quite a bit.

Yes, because it seems that not even Blizzard believe their DRM will prevent people from eventually pirating their game. So all this hooplah about Blizzard striking a blow against pirates is probably very premature. They've implemented the feature because they do believe this feature will stop item hacking, that is all.
