Confused about 'sync' and how existing users are treated

    Just installed this... but am confused about some things.

    - In the description it says it keeps Mailchimp subscribers "in sync" with Xenforo. What does this mean?
    - All existing users in our database's xf_user.brmi_subscribe column was set to "1" on install. This doesn't make sense. All our existing subscribers aren't subscribers of our mailing list. Shouldn't it default to '0'?

    - In the end, I want to make sure no one gets mass-subscribed or un-subscribed from anything.

    Dear Arn,

    Thanks for your business. Let me answer your confused:
    #1: That means when your users register an account on your forum or set preferences as a subscribers. Their email address will be sync with Mailchimp Lists.
    #2: This is our bug and we've just released an upgrade version. Please get it to solve your issue.
    #3: I'm sure that no one gets un-subscribed from this bug.
