How do I disable a folder's state?

Whenever a folder is shared, it says "State: Shared" at the bottom; How can I disable this?

Basically I want to be able to file share but I don't want it to show that.

Well 111 members have read your thread.

I don't understand why one would want to do such a thing as remove the word Shared on Shared folders. I also don't know of anyway to do such a thing.

If you could explain why you want to do such a things maybe more replies to your thread will be coming.
