...it is not illegal, not policed, people have access to seed, can plant it themselves in the back garden and can download a 3-minute one pager cookbook. It will not make it less desirable and people will bake it for their own consumption. The price will fall down to the equivalent of the value of time it requires to plant and bake it.
I think policing is tough; for this and faded insert. I wonder if the underlying intent is to protect forum users from paying unnecessary hard earned money, then could making the knowledge openly available be helpful.
I don't know how to fade one, but I'm guessing from the above posts that volunteers from the forum could post their own recipes of either i. dip gingerly in pain thinner for 90 seconds, wash in water and let naturally dry ii. preheat oven to gas mark 2, leave for 30 seconds iii. place under UV lamp, let it sit silently for 4 days to cure iv. tape onto table, apply car polish and using a rotary drill with the polish attachment fade it down to desired tone and so, on...
My guess is people will still buy it, and it is still desirable from beauty perspective but the premium will drop down to the value of the effort. And if it is possible to distinguish the recipe vs 40 years of exposure to sub and naturally rubbings against sleeve and things in general, the value of the natural would go up?
