The glue on *some* AR film is water soluble. You have to leave the paper towels on the AR film for 5-6 hours so that the water can seep through the microscopic pores of the film and dissolve the glue. I have de-matted about 30 displays. On more recent TN panels (like the Asus PG27VQ), they are no longer using water soluble glue. I've never damaged a polarizer. The biggest issue I have seen is that there is always residual glue left, which can smear/make the screen sticky and harder to clean.
