Comment (by Azinfiro):

 boonebgorges, can you please elaborate on your first point in your reply
 to #5536?
 1. The admin pages do not display a checklist of available members, only
 the auto-complete field, correct?

 2. Would the auto-complete field by itself generate stress on the system
 if the friends-only restriction were to be lifted? If not, wouldn't this
 be a acceptable solution to the problem?

 Regarding your second point, it is my assessment that the decision to
 withhold a feature in fear of it being abused should come down to the
 extent of such abuse. Wouldn't it be a better call to leave it to
 moderators to sanction abuse, or the administrators to disable the feature
 on an individual basis?

 Alternatively, you could allow users to block group invitations, similar
 to what facebook does.

 I also want to point out that it is also not possible to invite members to
 a group from the members page. To me, it would seem intuitive to be able
 to do this.
