In c++ you have the possibility to explicitly delete functions.
For more info see: https://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/language/function
Scroll down to the Function definition paragraph.

The syntax is:
void foo() = delete;

and what you basically do is explicitly tell that the function is not available.
In our codebase we sometimes use this to 'document' that we thought of a certain function, but explicitly do not want it to be present.

As the function is deleted, ideally you do not want code completion to suggest it.

namespace OMTLS
   void foo() {}
   void foo2() = delete;

int main()
   //OMTLS::foo2();   // foo2 should not be suggested by code completion...
   return 0;

Interesting, I was not aware of this feature.

What do you have:

VA Options -> Enhanced Listboxes -> Source of C/C++ content: Visual Assist OR Default Intellisense

set to? If you set this to "Default Intellisense" then the deleted items should not be listed in listboxes. Obviously this won't help if you have disabled the IDE intellisense database for some reason.

I have put in a bug report for VA suggesting these member functions:
