Defining “potentially negative, closed”

Dear Experian,

Does “potentially negative, closed” mean the account was paid?

When are closed accounts deleted?

Dear Experian,

Will the closed account ever be removed from my credit report?

A dispute results in an account being “updated” and “closed”

Dear Experian,

I disputed an account on my credit report. It came back “updated,” and on the status shows “closed.” Then it states, “account closed by grantor’s request.” Does this mean it is closed and I don’t have to pay that account, or does it mean something else?
