Is temporarily suspension because of low-quality contributions done automatically by the system or does it need moderators?

I hope the latter...

    Furthermore, do any forms of suspension occur automatically? I haven't heard of any yet myself, but I'd certainly want to! Feb 12, 2014 at 5:17

    @NickStauner Some spam defense mechanisms are automatic (but fed with information from users and moderators), there is an automatic question ban on some SE sites that is not enabled here, and an automatic answer ban (though that one is hard to hit, usually manual suspension happens before that). Suspensions are never automatic, they are always initiated by a moderator.

It needs moderators. Suspension always occurs after considerable thought and discussion between the moderators.
