This didn't appear to work (tried it in Chrome). Any plans to update the code?

I did a little updating so the code worked for me, I'm not sure how to directly contribute so I forked the project (https://gist.github.com/babrath/5743753). Hope this helps people and kudos to adriaanm :-)

Hi Barbrath,

PS: The new script did work!!!! I'm so excited!

I signed up to this website because I really wanted to let you know, thank you SOOOOO much!

I have an obsolete group with 1645 members! I can't imagine how much time I would to spend to remove all members one by one!
