It's really all a matter of staying in character but still being democratic. It also depends on how much you want to engage your audience. If your being really audience aware, you can actually listen to them, or talk to them in the comments before, as a character, deciding that they're just blowing smoke. Or, depending on the character that you play, you can be upset that someone would try and jerk you around when your in such a delacate situation. Or you can ignore them, like most puppetmasters do. Since you don't plan to livestream, it's less of an issue, you won't have to think on your feet like that.
