    1. What exactly doe this Add-on do? How does it work?
    Just re-read the first line of the description: When a user changes their avatar image, this add-on will request CloudFlare purge the image from their cache.

    2. Why not use the aggressive setting on cloudflare to take full advantage of the timestamp string?

    1) It uses the cloudflare API to flush the cloudflare cache for the user's avatar images when the avatar changes.

    2) Because aggressive caching does not appear to work consistently for for me. [Update: it does now]

    Looked into this a bit more, as it seems like "aggressive" really should work fine. I've been going between "aggressive" and "simplified" and I'm not really seeing a difference. So I'm no longer sure if this is a useful add-on for me. I'm going to experiment further.

    [Update: using aggressive caching seems to work fine, so I'm not actually using this add-on. I'll leave it in case it's useful to someone]
