I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There is no way around this (that i know of) you either have copying allowed by specific users or you do not. If Copying is allowed by a specific user it will then always copy the Group Memberships as well.

no you can't.. my suggestion is to copy from another account or even create dummy accounts that you can use as templates.
