Default Oatmeal stout and Irish moss

Is there a point to using irish moss in an oatmeal stout? Will it clear out some of that chewy mouthfeel characteristic of the style?

A stout is still judged on clarity in competitions (shine a light through a nice dark stout and it'll have a pretty dark amber color), but if you're not using it in a competition feel free to leave it out. IMO Irish moss is just for preference, if you want it clear then use it.
