According to my reading of https://help.exacttarget.com/en-US/documentation/exacttarget/subscribers/subscribers1/, deleting a user from a list should result in that user's status on the list as "Deleted":

A subscriber who meets either of the following criteria has a status of Deleted:

  • A user has deleted a subscriber from a list other than the All Subscribers list. In this case, the subscriber's status for that list only is Deleted.

  • ...

However, if I remove a subscriber from a list using the Marketing Cloud webapp, that subscriber doesn't show up in subsequent ListSubscriber retrievals

Is this the expected behavior? If yes, is there any way I could retrieve list removals using the API?


That particular API call filters out soft deletes like this, so yes, it's the expected behavior. There currently is no way to track list changes like this through the API.
