Payment history may cause “paid” account to be listed as “potentially negative”

Dear Experian,

I have a paid, closed account showing as potentially negative on my credit report. Why, if it shows paid, is it listed as a negative item?

“Paid, Closed/Never Late” account status helps your credit standing

Dear Experian,

My Experian credit report has some accounts that have “Status: Paid, Closed/Never Late” with “Status Details: this account is scheduled to continue on record until” with a date. Is this a good thing on my report, a bad thing, something I want to get taken off?
