What would be better is to have a small "film" area up near the
speaker, and allow those who wish to be filmed show their explicit
consent by moving into it to ask their questions on camera, and to
not force anyone to be in that area if they do not want to be.
This also avoids the need for anyone to wear a scarlet letter
around the neck.
