I have met such attitudes.

Those who seek to make a living by playng gigs often resent those of us who play for little/nothing,or pay to play.

The open mic scenario is their enemy as were discos.

I can understand their attitude.

They are often, understandably earning little and so their equipment is as important to them as a plumber's or electrician's tools, and regarded in much the same way - i.e. tools, rather than the items of desire, beauty and wonder that some of us have/own/play/display.

What is our passion/hobby etc., is their bread and butter, and the less butter, the more bitter ...I suppose.
