Ha ha, okay buddy. Good luck enforcing that. If I decide to give you some money in exchange for some game keys, whether you call it a purchase or a donation or whatever, they're MINE and I can do whatever I want with them. So screw off.

I can see where the issue would be with reselling the keys, but just giving them away doesn't change the economics of the bundle one iota (apart from possibly increasing a potential buyer's willingness to pay, something that only helps the promotion and the developers).

So... you do see the issue here, right? Most of the games come with both a Steam key and a Desura key. If you keep one key and give the extra one to a friend, you're basically taking away any incentive for your friend to buy the bundle. If your friend had no intention of buying the bundle, then no harm done, but if he would have otherwise bought it, you're costing the devs a sale.

I do find it peculiar that you say "only" in reference to helping the promotion and developers. Who else is it supposed to be helping? If you enjoy a game, you should reward the developers. I find that most consumers tend to be extremely narrow-minded. Your spending habits have long-term repercussions that extend beyond just you.
