Please help explain......

About 2 weeks ago, I decided to do some CR cleaning up. I found under my "negative" reports, there were 5 creditors who all reported me as having a zero balance and paid as agreed/paid in full. However, all 5 creditors last reported this a couple of years ago.
 
I sent a letter to each creditor asking to remove the entries given that they carry a zero bal, paid in full, and most importantly- last reported date was years ago.
 
Yesterday, on my score watch I got this message. Can someone help me in explaining what this would mean to my overall score even though, my score as not yet changed to reflect this update?

Re: Please help explain......

accounts at 0 balance do not hurt your score unless you have no accounts with a balance.  You need to show small amounts (<10%) on a single card to have the best results here.
 
I rotate  a Sams, Gas, and Visa card that reports amounts to show usage.
 
Also the comments in your CR for each account (Trade lines) dont affect your score.

I'm no expert on this as I do not subscribe to ScoreWatch, but it seems to me that the ccc took your letter to be a dispute of some sort, and they were reporting correctly. It's just that they did not update.

I'm sure others will chime in shortly with their opinion.
