When is AO a full, equal Major?
By what year do you treat the Australian Open as a fully fledged, major slam tournament, that is equal to Wimbledon or the US Open or the French Open.
Sgt. John's Feb 2009 list suggests that it did not have this status until 1990.
(Indeed, he does award the FO this same status until 1978.)
Step 1: Refute content of argument. If that fails, Step 2: question intelligence of the author. If that fails, Step 3: demonize the messenger.
