I was recently blocked from chat (I deserve that anyway). Anyway, I thought this block will stop me from chatting anywhere in SE, but for some reason I am able to in some rooms like this SO room, but not in some other rooms.

Can someone explain this?

You are not yourself. That is, you on Chat.SE is not you on Chat.SO (or you on Chat.Meta.SE). Stack Overflow, Stack Exchange, and Meta Stack Exchange have their own chat domains, rooms, and users, so there's 3 separate accounts. You're not suspended on Chat.SO or Chat.M.SE, but you are on Chat.SE.

    Curious to know if it's even possible for a mod or even SE-employee to give real cross-network chat suspension, i.e. on all three domains. – Shadow Wizard is Ear For You Mar 29 '15 at 6:08
  • @ShadowWizard Not for mods (chat.meta only has employees as diamonds, if nothing else), but for CMs and Q&A devs, why wouldn't it be? Worst case, we'd have to go to three domains and issue three suspensions. Not hard. – Adam Lear Mar 30 '15 at 0:23
  • @Anna sure, meant more like "is it possible with one click" :) – Shadow Wizard is Ear For You Mar 30 '15 at 7:55
