@Catalina: When I moved here from Massachusetts, I went to the bank in Southcenter to close my MA account and move it to WA (The proximity to work, and the fact that they'd been mostly ok to me after they bought the much smaller bank I'd had my account with before is why I was with them.)
A year later I got a call from collections saying I owed money on the MA account which was obviously collecting fees and such since they hadn't actually CLOSED it closed it (and without any action, it stopped being free).
Fortunately a quick call to BoA and I never heard about that issue again, but stuff like that makes me have little sympathy for BoA ever.

@53: Unitarians are not Christians. SOME Unitarian Universalists are Christians. Others are Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, or Atheists. I'm in the last category, my parents are probably Christians, some of my friends from church are wonderful Jews.
The core of Unitarian Universalism is believing in "Love thy neighbor" as the highest commandment, but we don't care how you get there (faith, utilitarianism, etc.)
