You have been here the same amount of time  have, but apparently did not take the time to read the articles or else you would know that closing credit accounts makes the same amount of ,sense as shooting yourself in the foot.  Just keep them locked up someplace safe and take the time to read the information  here so you can learn how credit really works.
