Giving seed higher light will get you a higher germination rate and seed will germinate faster. Maybe you should heed your own advice about not criticizing if you haven't tried it. I don't see how much growing you could be doing yourself with a staff of 55!
If you think light has nothing to do with germination, then you have no idea what you're talking about. You're also the only 'prominent' figure in the nep field that I know of that doesn't accept the 2% germination rate in the wild that I know of, as I have heard it quoted many, many, many times. Again, you are denying what I say while providing absolutely no evidence to the contrary, and attempting to attack me. Let's not have another pitcherplants incident here. Maybe if you had a bio degree you would know how important light is for germination of seeds that stay on the surface .
As I said on the other forum, I advise you to grow up and drop it; I thought we were past this.
