Because I'm both someone with hypervigilance issues **and** a designer/developer with a strong desire to control when and where animated elements are allowed within the sites I produce. (If a muted `<video>` wouldn't be allowed, then I probably won't allow an animated `<img>` either.)

Hence my comment about using image-processing libraries server-side. (To limit the risk, I've taken to using a simple a pre-check stage which detects APNG and animated GIFs using only very limited, defensively-coded inspection routines before I feed only the animated stuff to the full parser.)

On my hobby sites, a lack of this has actually been one of the factors delaying a move away from full pre-moderation to a more wiki-like experience.
