I mean, I am completely upfront about what I'm doing, so I trust anyone who has a problem with it will speak up, and certainly most people are deliriously grateful. The venues fall all over themselves to encourage me and make me feel welcome, it's touching.
I have run into what you're alluding to, although it's spectacularly rare... people who are all about second-guessing and micro-managing their exposure, truth to tell I recognize this as a variety of self-destructiveness that eventually will doom their efforts at a career. One of life's mysteries... why anyone would think exposure and publicity are negatives, in a world that is indifferent to them anyway...
anyway, the few times this has come up, I delete their video, roll my eyes and wish them luck!
