I could deal with either of the suggested remedies here: a preference setting to hide Suggested chat users by default or a persistent state where collapsing it once kept it that way until I expanded it. The latter would probably be the solution most in line with Mac UI practices (which is the platform on which I am using Teams). But having a colourful list of people in a sidebar is not only a distraction, some of the suggestions are of people that trigger me, so I'd rather Microsoft keep my day calmer.
