Although i really like mr. Wester I can agree that the whole thing's blown a bit out of proportion and maby little too cynic. Some of the points are great though.
I think you could have different events and venues for the different views with different judging systems. Like some comps organized by companies like surface or jiberish that focus motre on innovation and ivdividual style and them these bigairs with a more structured system based on mostly technicality, might work?
Still these would get lots of hate since the big issue really is that there are a couple people judging from a booth and it's not very objective, and it can't be so I think the easy way out is to keep everything as it is and stop hating on judges because they're just people with a right to their opinions.
