Members Directory Displays ALL Members

In the members directory.. there is a tab that shows ALL members.. is there a way to get rid of that? for instance, i have only 245 registered members for my site.. to some, being a social network and all, i believe that can be discouraging. So my question is.. how do i get rid of that or toggle it on/off as needed? furthermore, it displays statistics after doing a member search such as "showing 123 of 235 active members" .. again, displaying to my subscribers how many members are on the site. Its a great feature to have i understand for sites that have 100's of Thousands of members, but for mine that is just barely a month old, it's kindve dissappointing.. especially when someone tries out your site and posts as a comment "i love this site, but i wish it had more than 245 users" :slight_frown: any suggestions? plz help....
Thanx in advance
