Description

seen on #django:
<illustir> what's the difference between a user with "Active" and one with "Staff status" ?
<illustir> the help text says the same thing: "Designates whether the user can log into this admin site." and "Designates whether this user can log into the Django admin. Unselect this instead of deleting accounts."

forgot to mention, the problem is that the description for 'Active' is misleading. A User who's not active cannot log in at all, this flag is decoupled from the admin.
