hmm? that's correct and is can be confusing.
Still the information box gives the gives the correct statement.

I do think that the check boxes are superflous. A text link showing only unsubscribe or subscribe to topic/forum would leave no room for doubt.

You can send PM's to a group. If it's just specific members you want to send these multi PM's to you can create hidden group and add them.
