Just to clarify - even closed TLs count against age; therefore it does not matter whether a TL is open or closed when age is calculated?

According to EX, that does not appear to be the case.  There seem to be two measurements - when the first account was opened is one.  But they seem to be using my active TLs to calculate the length of my credit history.  Hence the one active card that does not report to them (out of 4) makes a huge difference to the average.  Whereas that one card out of all my cards would have no impact on the average age.
I might be confused here, but that is what the averages say

The slide from grace is really more like gliding
And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid
