I do the same Fidget
If you allow the seeds to form the bulb will be weaker the following year and produce fewer and smaller blooms.
If I understand his final sentence correctly, Frank 4004 seems to be under the misapprehension that deadheading lilies will produce sideshoots and more flowers as with delphiniums, lupins etc, but this is not so. Each bulb produces just the one flower spike, as with other bulbs such as tulips, daffodils, hyacinth etc.
