I know, this thread is "somewhat" old (it's from October 2005), but

Does it still hold true what Rob wrote there? That MediaWiki does 
not support the deletion of users? Is that still the case in 1.11.0?
Or does someone know of an extension which will allow to easily
remove user accounts?

Thanks a lot,
