I am using the query GET: https://api.constantcontact.com/v2/contacts?api_key=xxx&status=REMOVED
and am getting a large number of records with status of OPTOUT and even one ACTIVE as well as a couple REMOVED.
A number of the contacts have email_addresses/status of REMOVED, but not all.
Is there something wrong with this filter option? Other status options seem to work as expected.
