I will attempt to show why we can no longer just "brush the chromosphere under the carpet", magnetic or otherwise, and ignore its importance either in a solar or plasma physics context. I hope to convince you that the chromosphere deserves to be studied by more than an interesting group of souls who have, like myself, long since lost their way, and become hopelessly entangled in one of the most awkward parts of the Sun.
