To be honest; I personally find it interesting to know how these illusions are done. It's a fact that there's nothing supernatural behind illusions and I find it intriguing to figure out the secrets and by knowing how several of them are performed it's easier to decompose other illusions. Further, showing how some of the common illusions are done can spark interest in the younger generation to get into magic.
Furthermore, showing how a lot of common/popular illusions are done can push illusionists to develop newer/better tricks.
I can see that some people may be disappointed by how simple some of these illusions are and by how easily they were fooled, but being a great illusionist is all about showmanship.
