I think you guys need to just let listserv be. It's his money. Besides, if you are "99.999999%" it is not Eden Black, why the fuss? It's his money, someone sold it to him, end of story. Sometimes it seems this whole business of telling novice growers that Cephs are difficult to cultivate is some sort of huge conspiracy. There is nothing to growing them... in fact, I just water mine and leave it alone.
What he decides to do with it is his business... not the forums.
Listserv, if you have any questions shoot me a PM.
