How could it not survive?
The forums get a lot of hate but the game and forums are incredibly active.
There is no sign of Diablo 3 becoming a ghost town.
We have people who 'quit' 5 months ago and still support the game through it's forums.
The issues make people angry but they keep coming back.
All the signs are showing that we may be angry, but we haven't stopped caring.
If we reach a point where we have almost no posts on issues like AH glitches, duping, botting, patch deadlines, and maintenance....then I'd begin to worry.
As of today, it would really surprise me if the expansion failed to sell 1.5 million copies within the first 3 months.
I personally don't see a lot of sales after release. I think we'll see there will be less than 500,000 sales if that.
Most will never come back, but I'm sure some will consider buying the expansion after they've seen these forums and user reviews on it.
The problem is, the expansion is doomed to fail unless they address the core mechanic issues (itemization, rmah, lack of content etc..)

D3 will "survive"?
It sold more copies than any other game, remember? Huge potential base of x-pack buyers. Plus Blizz has some egg on its face from the on-going issues. Huge incentive for them to fix it.
