Deletion request for Watermarked photos declined

In the following contributions, I tried to delete photos with a watermark. They have all been declined, but I don't think they should have. Can a staffer please take a look? Also, what is the reason this happens so much for photos with watermarks on them? Have the rules been unclear internally?

Hi Marco -

Concerning the rejections of your reports, I believe these were errors in vetting from our editors.  I have now removed these images and reached out to the user who uploaded them to confirm our policy, that we don't allow copyrighted images with watermarks.

Michelle,
Can you reach out to whomever reviewed the request and ask why they declined them? Knowing that might help with getting them accepted in the first place. Right now I've got about 10 watermark delete requests queued and wonder if they'll go thru or not.
thx

Thanks a bunch, especially for contacting the person who uploaded them in the first place.
