I think if all you're doing is telling your friends about your app and encouraging them to post honest reviews in the App Store, that's probably fine.

The MAS receipt is designed just so you can't do that - otherwise you could hand the app to all your friends without them having to buy it ;-) Did you try telling App Store to "Ignore Updates" - right click in empty space to the right of the App name… though I've heard reports this is no longer working in Yosemite; I've no updates to test on right now.
