datuk has no value anymore

To me, this is a simple issue however some of u got clouded with emotion.
One has to distinguish between effort expended and goal achieved. LCW was awarded with money, that is enough to recognize his hard effort. However, he didn't achieved any exceptional milestone or goal, which was a gold medal, therefore, datuk title is underserving. If u think datuk title is deserving, there are many MAL athletes who have achieve equal or higher status than LCW. For ex., the deaf MD gold winners. They got zilch, nadda, didoly sqwat. Why aren't u defending these exceptional achievers?
LCW's datukship was just an exploitation of the MAL gov't, who in the end is the real benefactor of the lcw's silver medal.
you said "Your lack of appreciation of what LCW and Misbun has brought to your country appals me." Well then, by your standard, it would be appalling as well of not awarding datuk titles to those people who achieve all those boleh feats like the engineers who constructed the tallest flag, the longest pencil, the chef who cooked the biggest omelet, etc Why aren't u defending these exceptional achievers?

In this undated picture made available Thursday, Oct. 16, 2008 by Britain's Natural History Museum, a giant stick insect named Phobaeticus chani, meaning 'Chan's megastick.' is seen. Britain's Natural History Museum says a Malaysian amateur naturalist has discovered the world's longest insect, the more than 22-inch long 'megastick.' The museum says the oversized walking stick bug was discovered by Datuk Chan Chew Lun on the Malaysian island of Borneo.

CHONG WEI RECEIVES DARJAH BAKTI AWARD
Bernama - 2 hours 31 minutes ago(EMBARGO: FOR RELEASE ON OR AFTER 1030 HRS, JUNE 6)
KUALA LUMPUR, June 6 (Bernama) -- World number one singles badminton player Datuk Lee Chong Wei has been chosen as the second recipient of the Darjah Bakti (D.B.) award in conjunction with the birthday of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin today.
Squash queen Datuk Nicol Ann David was the first recipient of the award last year.
Chong Wei was conferred the award in recognition of his achievements in badminton, particularly in the Beijing Olympics last year where he won the silver medal - his best ever.
Introduced on June 26 1975, the award is meant for Malaysians who make outstanding contributions in raising the stature of the country in various fields.
The Darjah Bakti award, which does not carry any title, is limited to 10 recipients at any one time.
SPORT-AWARD 2 KUALA LUMPUR
Despite losing several major tournaments, Chong Wei, 27, from Bukit Mertajam, Penang has fought hard to stay at the top of world badminton.
He began serious participation in the sport when he represented Bukit Mertajam District in the Penang School Sports Council championship at the age of 14 in 1996 and since then there was no looking back.
Named the National Sportsman of the year in 2005 and 2008, Chong Wei was conferred the Ahli Mangku Negara (AMN) award in 2006 and the Darjah Setia Pangkuan Negeri (DSPN) after the Beijing Games, which carries the title "Datuk" by Penang.
Besides the DB award given to Chong Wei today, former national soccer player Datuk Abdul Ghani Minhat received the Panglima Jasa Negara (PJN), which carries the title "Datuk".
Abdul Ghani, 73, from Kampung Solok, Rantau, Negeri Sembilan was hailed as "raja bola" (king of football) for his feat in helping Selangor to clinch the Malaya (now Malaysia) Cup for Selangor in 1956, 1959, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1966, 1968 and 1969.
SPORTS-AWARD 3 (LAST) KUALA LUMPUR
In the international arena, he had helped Malaya lift the Pestabola Merdeka trophy three times in a row from 1958 to 1960.
He was also instrumental in the national squad's gold medal haul in the SEAP Games (now SEA Games) in 1961 when they edged Burma (now Myanmar) 2-1 in the final.
Abdul Ghani was bestowed the Pingat Jasa Kebaktian (PJK) in 1962, Ahli Mangku Negara (AMN) in 1967 and again in 1971.
He was conferred the Darjah Indera Mahkota Pahang (DIMP) from Pahang that carries the title "Datuk" in 2000 and the Dato' Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah (DSSA) award from Selangor.
Abdul Ghani was named the Footballer of the Year in 1959 and 1960, the Sportsman of the Year in 1959 and was the winner of the FAM-SAM-Glamour World of Sports Award 1996.
