I swear I'm not trying to troll here, I'm just curious as to why Its online only. I know Some of it has to do with pirating and the Real money Auction house but is there any other motives I'm missing?
Edit: God, You people reply fast.
Now that everyone is through listing their assumptions, yes piracy is a small reason why this decision was made.
Thanks for the well thought out answer!

yea its mostly so people cant pirate the single player content.
It came down to screwing over all of their loyal paying customers vs generating a miniscule amount of revenue from whatever small sliver of pirates there are that only want to play D3 for the single player.

I'd agree to most of those. However an opt out, or offline mode still wouldn't have hurt them at all. It would have completely avoided this mess today.
And concerns regarding hacks and dupes coupled with the RMAH.
But really, the #1 reason
Because Blizz doesn't really like you. Right now, they are all playing pin the power cord in the server, while drunk, swimming in the wads of cash you poor saps fed them.
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
Posts containing personal information about other players. This includes physical addresses, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and inappropriate photos and/or videos.
Harassing or discriminatory language. This will not be tolerated.
