Does Stack Exchange suspend users solely for striking or supporting the strike? Of course, users who are on strike could still be suspended for unrelated activities, or for promoting the strike in unacceptable ways, but is SE suspending users because they are on strike?

    Punish people who stopped volunteering by... preventing them from volunteering? How exactly would that work?

    @DanMašek many users who are on strike are still asking and answering, just not moderating.

Nope. So far as from what I can tell, from what I see offsite, and what I see on this site and others I moderate, there's been no reports of people being suspended specifically for being on strike.

Technically being rude and abusive is a related activity for some, but as one of the two sites that's likely the lightning rod for drama on the network, there have been no suspensions for striking in general.

No, this has not happened. No one has been suspended for reasons related to the strike.
