    Unsubscribe. Does it mean remove from db or secretly keep till they forget about it?


    What's the best thing to do with those who unsubscribe?

    That is totally up to the scripter. It can remove that account completely to help keep the database clean. They may also leave everything in the database for reference for so long, and possible re-activation/recovery. To do that, they would simply have a status define the current status of the account. It may define more than active/inactive, such as locked if someone tried logging in incorrectly too many times, or a past-due payment if a service item such as Netflix.
