Delete Members in SecurityAdmin

Regarding this previous posts about completely removing members from the database and the absence of a solution, I wondered if there is a reason for not having the possibility to delete members.

I really think is a basic operation that really should be available in the CMS by default. Why is it not there?

And also removing a lote members from a group takes ages, since we can only remove them one by one.
Is it an idea to have checkboxes on the Tablefield like in the AssetAdmin?

And when removing a member from a group, the member still exists, but you can't see them anywhere.
I was thinking of adding a tab or grouplink to display all ungrouped members (with a tablefield, so you can use a dropdown with the groups, so you can easily assing ungrouped members to a group)

I'm curious about your ideas and suggestions to solve the problem of undeleted ghostmembers.

Agreed, there should be a (non-techie) way of completely removing a member from the system, as this is a real privacy issue. We're working on it... not sure if it will happen for 2.4 though, as it basically requires a UI redesign of the security section to a certain extent.
