"To most badminton fans (even Chinese fans), YES, an Asian Games GOLD is considered a MAJOR TITLE!"
This is the comical part. You said the Asian games gold is a major title. You based your opinion on most badminton and chinese fans consider the AG gold as a major title (source?? ). And when asked for your opinion whether you consider the AG gold as in the same category as the WC or Olympic gold, you cant even give a straight answer. What happened to your claims bout most badminton and chinese fans consider the AG gold as a biggie!!?
Check with NSC ... ahhh okay dokey And by the way, KKK/TBH AG gold was not Msia's first ever badminton gold medal in the AG. We won it 6 times before KKK/TBH.
Been nice chatting, dude.

As for the source, u have it here:
"If we were to select which sport in the Asian Games will be considered equal in standards to the Olympics, then Badminton must be one if it. Apart from Denmark, most of the badminton-strong countries are concentrated in Asia. So, the worthyness of a title winner of the Asian Games is definitely not lower than that of an Olympics Games.
If Yang Wei/Zhang Jiewen were to win, then they would achieve the rare distinction of having won the Grand Slams: the Olympics, Asian Games and World Championships.
On the 9th Dec, the final of the Men's Singles event, Taufik Hidayat. the youngest ever winners of the Olympics, Asian Games and World Championships, the Grand Slams, finally declared that he has still no intention to retire from the court.
The Four Grand-Slams: Olympics, World Championships, Asian Games and All-England.
So, I rest my case. It's up to u whether or not to consider an Asian Games gold as a major title, but, u can see that most ppl do consider it as a major achievement

Just my 6 sen rupiahs-Perhaps..
In Pemuda's "eyes", even if the source of the quotes came from a CHN-based source, the AG is not as "valuable" as OG or even WC because it doesn't showcase ALL the top BWF players?? Or the AG could be on the same level as say the Commonwealth Games?? Or maybe the AG is not one of BWF's sanctioned event, thus reducing its importance??..
*Btw, for those who haven't read, Pemuda just wrote a mini-bio Intro. abt himself, here:

Allow me, to provide you with the facts taken from ; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Badminton#Competitions
"Individual competition in badminton was a demonstration event in the 1972 and 1988 Summer Olympics. It became a Summer Olympics sport at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992. The 32 highest ranked badminton players in the world participate in the competition, and each country submitting three players to take part. In the BWF World Championships, only the highest ranked 64 players in the world, and a maximum of three from each country, can participate in any category.
All these tournaments, along with the BWF World Junior Championships, are level one tournaments.
At the start of 2007, the BWF also introduce a new tournament structure: the BWF Super Series. This level two tournament will stage twelve open tournaments around the world with 32 players (half the previous limit). The players collect points that determine whether they can play in Super Series Final held at the year end.
Level three tournaments will consist of Grand Prix Gold and Grand Prix. Top players can collect the world ranking points and enable them to play in the BWF Super Series open tournaments. These include the regional competitions in Asia (Badminton Asia Championships) and Europe (European Badminton Championships), which produce the world's best players as well as the Pan America Badminton Championships.
The level four tournaments, known as International Challenge, International Series and Future Series, encourages participation by junior players."
