PS themselves say that sitting out is a perfectly legal strategy. Both other players non-explicitly blinding out another player is perfectly legal as well.
Enforcement is up to the site. Collusion is without question a TOS violation. Many colluders have been busted without saying a word at the table -- it's plainly obvious to the trained eye when collusion is taking place.
Of course sitting out is a legal strategy, I didn't say otherwise. And the other players can take advantage of that, just like they can take advantage of other player tendencies, but they can't discuss it. I was just pointing out that a collusion finding doesn't require discussion at the table.

To be clear, I don't think anything will come of this. But when it comes to collusion, understand that it being a micro SNG doesn't matter. The amount in play doesn't determine whether it's collusion or not. Collusion is considered serious and grounds for all sorts of punitive actions against your account, so don't do it regardless of stake.
As to playing against a sitter, you can choose to play against the sitter any way you like. From a pure strategy standpoint, of course you should steal his blinds. What you can't do is agree with another player to something like "I take this one, you take that one, etc." and then avoiding playing against each other until the sitter is out. As an extreme example, if you folded AA preflop so your opponent could steal the sitters blind, that would be blatant and actionable collusion. I'm almost certain that PS or any other site would have an issue with that if it were discovered.
