Or go to the FAQ

and read article 3.13.

In this case it looks like the address has a <CR> at the end. This can
be expressed in a python string as 'rona.cole at lausd.net\r' or as
'rona.cole at lausd.net\x0D' or 'rona.cole at lausd.net\015'.

Also, you might just try using one of the above example addresses with
bin/remove-members. I don't know if that will work.
