AFAIK, delete the record for this user in wacko_users table -- but I don't know about the sides effects ; e.g., who becomes the user of a page owned by this user ? DidierSpaier[link5] /29.09.2004 01:20/

Since R5 you can use the user management section in the Admin panel[link8] to disable or delete users.
