    open uses sp chars
    closed nl has all of the hacked/dup'd items from past ladder seasons
    closed ladder has fewer hacked/dup'd items but some do exist

    check how active the trading forums are

    Wrong. Open battle net uses single players characters. Those can be easily hacked with editors. The most dupe/hack free multiplayer environment is closed battle net ladder. Although there are still a lot of dupes there. If you really want a dupe/hack free environment, its single player all the way. You can find a single player community here on the forum.

    The Single Player forum has a subforum dedicated to multiplayer games through TCP/IP arrangements. I stopped playing on Battle.net completely after the first 1.10 ladder reset, and have played exclusively Single Player since. (Including many TCP/IP multiple player games.) There is a widely accepted runeword mod that enables all Ladder-only runewords, and the only online features you would not have are the Uber Diablo and Tristram Uber events. Single Player has some additional benefits, such as the use of Atma as a muling application to easily store and transfer equipment, the ability to keep the same map for efficient magic find runs, and no "realm down" or other connection interruptions. It's not for everyone, and battle.net has its own pro's and con's, but Single Player play is a viable and rewarding option.
