[wp-hackers] Question about get_user_meta update_user_meta

I have been using update_usermeta and get_usermeta because sometimes the string comes back empty and i'm totally lost on it's usage.

Basically I have 
get_user_meta($current_user->ID,'comicpress-is-member', true);

to get the user meta is-member tag

and updating 

update_user_meta($id, 'comicpress-is-member', $comicpress_is_member);

where id = (int)$_POST['user_id'])  in my save filter.

The problem is my understanding with WPMS, does this flag carry over to all blogs? or just the main one, i'm a little lost on this one after reading the conversation  in the list recently.

Basically I want to get and store the information on the main blog but have it available and used on all subblogs as well.
