Why o people put Moat in a spoiler?

It's an inside joke. Comes from the Puzzle-section where it's proper to set your solutions in spoilers. For some reason Moat was a popular joke-answer (I think I know why but since I wasn't around then I don't want to guess, I could be wrong) and then it spread.. At least it's not a scout or Mine/Mint-joke..

Ozle posted it multiple times for basically no particular reason at all.

I don't know if this helped get the ball rolling, but I made a really complicated puzzle where the answer was Moat, but right then Ozle disappeared and my plan was foiled :(

To explain the joke more fully: in the game you block an attack by revealing Moat, so in the forum people like to make it so you have to mouse over the spoiler space to reveal Moat. This protects you from revenge witches.

Was that Ozle's reasoning?  He was definitely the sole originator of the meme.

Most things can be traced back to Ozle. Everything can be traced back to WanderingWinder.

Man. I had four strips of bacon yesterday. Was one automatically undercooked, one automatically overcooked? No, let's put a stop to that right here, all four strips were excellent.

I'm 90-93% sure Ozle's reasoning was just that he hated the card for some reason so he thought it would be amusing to guess it in every puzzle.

Except sudgy.
