For a very obvious reason, this post is all kinds of stupid.

To answer your second question, there was nothing about gem transmutation except for taking little uncommon gems and making 1 rare gem.
I don't know why you seem to think that.
Alpha leaks for the Burning Crusade didn't hit the public until later July/early August, and then it was just a few talents, and new starting zones, the game still took months after the initial leaks to get into a beta, and finally release at the end of January.
We're almost at April, and there's really been nothing save a few updates on the WotLK about 3 of the zones, in addition Blizzard isn't just making new races, they're designing an entire new class, balance balance balance. Until we get all of the zones published on the website, and leaked alpha talents I wouldn't expect WotLK for a summer release. Hell Kalgan was talking about spell concepts for Warlocks a few weeks ago, and those weren't even set in stone.
Amazon lists the release date for preorders as Nov 30, 2008. Gamestop has Nov 03, 2008 as the date although they have a disclaimer on their date. It looks like businesses that I'd expect to be giving as good information as anyone's speculation believe that it's scheduled for the same holiday timeframe as TBC. Like TBC, who knows when it will actually come out until Blizzard says something about it.
