Cleaning communities' members and posting access lists

I was going through the members list (http://www.livejournal.com/community/members.bml?comm=communityname) of one of the communities I maintain and noticed a couple of things:

1) Deleted and purged journals are still listed. There were about 125 purged journals listed there O_o. They were also counted on the Profile page, mistakenly increasing the number of members this community had.
ETA: to make it very clear, I'm only talking about purged journals here, not journals which have simply been deleted and can be re-activated.

2) Some communities, which I suspect are personal journals turned into communities (and not old comms which, back in the day, were like ordinary users) were also listed even though they couldn't post to the community.

So I suggest that these two types of journals be automatically deleted from the members list, the posting access list and any other relevant list.

Full description of the idea

An ordered list of benefits
  • Less maintenance for clean freaks Procastination Masters like yours truly.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • I'm sure some of you will want to keep comms listed as members ...

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Cross one's fingers?
