Someone asked a question about this image of a dress that changes colors from blue and black to gold and white. Why was it removed?
*BTW, I figured it out. I originally saw it as gold and white, but was able to relate to the people who saw it as black and blue when I blocked out everything but the dress with my hands and focused my eyes on the dress alone. It all has to do with how your eyes process the tint of the image.
Maybe a bunch of people were asking it and it was automatically marked as spam. Most sources I saw said the same thing you said, that some people automatically adjust for the ambient lighting when perceiving color. I personally can't even do that if I tried. Some said there are gender differences in people who have this ability, and I checked this website to see if this was the case.
