I too would like to see Ben stick with more hosta research, but at the 
same time I wish he would be more cooperative in reporting on his 
results and not jump to sloppy conclusions so quickly.  Ben has a lot 
to offer because of his molecular and biochemical genetics background 
and the research facilities that he has available, but he also has a 
lot of weak spots in understanding botany and horticulture.  

I'm not sure just what the problem is with getting an article 
published in the Hosta Journal, but he has had other articles 
published, so no one is discriminating against him.  The problem with 
Ben's articles is his extreamly poor english.  I've done some work 
rewriting some articles for the lily society for some Germans, and 
it's difficult to do.  In Ben's case you have complicated science that 
the reviewers don't understand well combined with his poor english.  I 
could easily see where it could take 6 months or more to work out a 
suitable manuscript.
