We want everybody to feel welcome, and we want to make these forums a community which is open to all.
ehh? Welcome me by busting my balls for not taking time to register? Registering isn't a problem, just an inconvenience.

If registration is an inconvenience, then I think the least you can do when asking for people's help is to tell us who you are.
You're bashing me for telling you that anonymous posts should not expect an answer. Now how do I even know that you are the one who asked the anonymous question?
You wouldn't believe the amount of e-mails and anonymous postings we get (and sometimes respond to). So if it is an inconvenience, then we'll simply solve it by closing down the forums and deny anonymous postings.
Well, we like to help people out and offer an open forum. We pay for this stuff out of our own pockets and spend our free time running this website. Lots of people help out, and they all (hopefully) get something back from being a part of this small community.

It is just that we have been having problems with anonymous posters recently, and it is being over used a little. Nothing against you in particular. We are currently debating if we should continue to allow anonymous posting or not.
I have made a post here addressing these problems, so maybe that will clear it some and prevent misunderstandings like this from happening (as this was - just a simple misunderstanding). At the least, posting a name at the end of the post would help a lot
Now to your question. Like Tormod, I'm no expert in dermatology, but I do believe that UV light is required for a body to function properly. I will try to find some more info on the subject for you.

I found this very interesting :-) it's a bit off from the topic but hey you can always learn there's also sun effect you might see it if you search through it.
As for the "welcoming" I felt very welcome here, and I enjoy science very much, so I would say that registering here is not an INCONVENIENCE :-P but something that might help you out eh? :-P You can find so many intellegent people, you probably don't see as much around you( might be wrong). Now I can say I'm lucky because all my parents' friends teach in university or are engineers. :-)
Thanks again, Tormod for accepting me here considering the sarcasticly brutal nickname I had before :-P
The Oracle of the past :-P
