Why did you state a tip to raise my score by requesting higher credit limit on credit catrds?
Why would you suggest this to raise my score, yet it lowered it. I feel like an idiot for listening to your bad advice. Why would you do this to me?????

It is not the site's fault.  The recommendations were made by the credit card companies that advertise on (and pay for) this site.  You always have the choice to accept or reject any recommnendations.  No one is forcing you to do so.

You've been a member here since 2014 and have obviously not been taking advantage of reading the community posts and helpful articles here.

A hard inquiry resulted from asking for a credit increase.  That always lowers your score a bit, but it will lessen over time.
