Thanks for your advice... I probably have 15-20 credit cards. Two are major cards (Discover & Visa), the rest are department store cards. The reason I originally thought about closing some is because of the comment from FICO that says this may be affecting my score. But if, as you say, they are scrambling to find some negatives, maybe I shouldn't worry about it and just leave them open...
