And where would this option be ???... because I thought they were hard coded, that's why I've never even bothered to try and remove them :P :D.

in your admin under configuration
Features and Options > Profile Fields

uncheck the boxes for active and save

Ummm... is this in 2.0.x or in 2.1? I can't seem to find it :-\. The only things I've got in Features and Options is "General", "Layout", "Signatures" and "Who's Online".
