In the past few minutes a user posted the same message in almost every SO chat room. They had generated about 14 flags before they came into our room. Upon entering, they posted the same spam message as in the other rooms.
When I tried to kick-mute the user, I got this message: "You cannot kick suspended users" which is one of the stipulations in @balpha's answer here :https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/239226/178816 under "Who can be kicked?"
The kickee is not suspended.
However, one of the parts of the kick-mute system, as stated in the same answer is
They will drop out of the "who's here" list, and they will be redirected to a page that (almost precisely) contains the message that Shog9 suggested. They will also be shown this page if they try to re-enter the room.
At this point, the user noted above has been suspended from chat for a month. And yet, they are still in the room which led me to some confusion.
Is this because they were automatically suspended due to flags? Is it possible to remove this user automatically from rooms they are in when they are suspended? If I kick-mute a suspended user can it simply remove them from the room similar to if they tried to enter a room? Is this by design?
