Not necessarily using real money either, but in-game gold.

It seemed to me that Blizzard was going away from the old route (you gain all your magical items by drops), and trying something new (you get more gold drops and you buy the magical items you want). I could be way off though, I'm just going by what I've observed from other people talking about it.
Fair enough. But I don't see any (legitimate) reason not to believe what they said about it: they wanted to shut down the black market for items that grew up around D2 and provide an official way for their customers to buy and sell items within the game.
