You can tell a reliable source a mile off, first you gave no indication of where you heard this rumour, other than from an insider, which was my main concern. However you didn't even spell the product name correctly, or give a very detailed post. Oh well, you want the hits, and you did it cleverly. Your reputation may be bruised for a small amount of time, but you fooled many people, and it's their own fault for believing it, and that's why I take my hat off to you.
That being said I would never risk making up news for hits, although I have been fooled in the past. So here is my big congratulations to Windows X's Shrine, for pulling it off, although I believe that making up information is wrong.
I wonder who will be next to make up a release date
Edit: This is not targeting Windows X's Shrine, it's simply making people aware that release dates for Windows Live Messenger are often made up, and Microsoft don't tend to leak such information.
