According to Twitter and Tuna on Globaldebate an independent judge has been dropped from the judges break at Worlds because of a comment he made during the masters final which people complained about. The speaker in question was taking part in the Masters tournament and was an independent judge in the main event.
Update: The individual in question made an apology after the ESL final but apparenly the issue continued to pop up at Worlds. It seems that the long discussion we have seen on this site is reflecting the attitude at the tournament itself. Pity. I hope this can get sorted out.
I have also had to delete some comments which named individuals. Please do not use an individual's name. Remember people have lives outside debating and a google search of their name will pick up these discussions.
