Don't Disable/Ban then - that will keep them from joining. You have to delete them, which will send them a notification. It also doesn't look like the message template for that email is available in the admin console - I was going to suggest that you render the template unusable (temporarily) so that it would effectively stop it from being sent. But you can't if it isn't exposed.
Since you do not want them creating documents/blogs, go into the template of the group and disable those feature options.
STEPS to do this
Thanks Carol but I don't think this will work for my scenario. I want some members to be able to create documents. I just want to bulk-remove old members from the legacy group type. I have decided in this case to just leave them 'in' as members and when they create something, I will ask them to move it if it's not relevant. This group is about support so it has only a few official document resources, the rest is Q&A.
