    Bank of America calls off debit-fee plan! To all of us who have BoA accounts, we must celebrate! Time to make our ways onto the streets, hook arms and skip down the roads whilst we laugh and dance; raise your glasses of fine champagne (apple cider for those underage) and toast this amazing miracle that has touched us; sing the tunes of happiness as we embrace one another, for this is a common people's victory!!

    This is a big deal, people. BoA is finally doing something right.

    When I first heard that they were going to charge for debit use, I really couldn't find a reason other than pure greed. There are other ways to make up for these lost overdraft charges, and something like this just hurts those with fewer resources. It's good to know they wised up.

    There's this app for medium-old MetroPCS phones that has new weird news every week. I remember reading something about a man who tried to pay a bill entirely with pennies.

    My thoughts exactly. That thing looks a like a big-old eyesore. And it's making me itch all over, too, just from looking at it!

    It's criminal how ANYONE could/would consider this... Something worth constructing.

    It is in no way criminal. It's just slightly tasteless and clueless. I've noticed this happening a bit on the board lately, and I have to say there's no need to indulge in hyperbole on every controversial topic that comes up like this. Not everything is criminal, a cause for armed revolt, or a reason for a firing squad. As a rule, most things aren't. Let's discuss these things on reasonable and realistic terms, please.

    Agreed. A terrible and insensitive design.
