Is advertising a sale on the anonymous auction house bannable in anyways? I have something to sell for quite possibly a few hundred million gold but at the same time not many people may be looking for this item in the first place. I want to put it up for bid in the AH but also want to advertise that I have done so in various forums or so forth to let as many people know about it as possible. Is this action against the Anonymous sale policy and bannable as a result?

Sounds like something you'd want to ask the Diablo 3 mods, not a third-party community forum. – Iszi Jul 25 '12 at 2:08
I'd ask on the official Blizzard forum first. – deutschZuid Jul 25 '12 at 2:26
The battle net forums are flooded with senseless trolls. I figure it would be better if I asked here. See! I have some sensible answers from sensible people already. :) – ksming Jul 25 '12 at 2:29
You're probably going to end up selling thru AH, giving Blizzard a cut of the profits - why would they object? Also I've seen some posts doing exactly that (posted on Trade forum when item is on AH). – Alok Jul 25 '12 at 2:48

As Blizzard take a cut of your final sell price, they won't have an issue with you advertising the item both in game and outside of the game. In fact - they even provide a trading forum on the official Diablo 3 forums (EU, US) and a trade channel within the game itself.

The only thing that I could see you doing while advertising that might cause issues is if you ultimately end up spamming trade too frequently to get yourself seen, or bumping your forum post on the official forums too frequently. Blizzard's general rule on this is not to bump any thread of this nature until it falls off the first page.

Any actions that you take on third party forums are not bound by Blizzard's rules.
