In the chat, we were talking about filling the chat with images. I commented that so long as they aren't GIFs (content-appropriate implied too of course) that remain showing in the chat they are fine. The reason behind this is that GIFs are more distracting when left in GIF form (they're fine if changed to links after a little while so it doesn't show any longer). This is common policy across multiple SE rooms as a way to improve the quality of the chat rooms. It is one of the rules that is not explicitly stated because there are many of them that would be too long for the room's description and no one would read it anyway.
Directly after said comment, a user posted a GIF and, as per common policy, I moved it to the Trash room. Immediately afterwards I was removed as a room owner. What is the reasoning behind this?
To me it seems as if I were reprimanded for moving the GIF to the trash. If not, what was the reason?
