Says who?  The article you're quoting is addressing at those who eat
gebrochts on Pesach itself, so naturally they can eat it on Erev Pesach.
How do you know that those who don't eat gebrochts on (the first seven
days of) Pesach can eat it on Erev Pesach?

Zev Sero               A citizen may not be required to offer a 'good and
zev at sero.name          substantial reason' why he should be permitted to
                        exercise his rights. The right's existence is all
                        the reason he needs.
