Cannot delete user from Users table

Hi all,
I deleted the user from the Users table. Even after deleting it from this
table it appears in the “Select User” part of the Configuration tab. I
stopped apache and started it but the deleted user still keeps appearing.
Can someone tell me how to delete the user from the Users table.

Did you remove privileges (uncheck the "Let this user be granted rights"
button)?

Principals. You are headed for trouble modifying the tables directly.
It’s clear you don’t know what you are doing. Not a put-down. You
just need to know that you are headed for trouble.

I realized that deleting the users from the Users and Principals table
doesn’t help . After going through the archive i found out that the only
way to delete users is by changing their userid and e-mail address to
something else.
