This is a fair reason. A lot of the appeal of troll hacks come from the reaction of the player. I'm not sure how much people would be willing to just play through a troll hack on their own when a million other hacks exist for them to play. These types of hacks are more for people that upload YouTube videos or stream on Twitch. There's nothing wrong with that, but I question how much of SMWC's users fit the target demographic. Sometimes it feels like everyone is so concerned about "good level design" that troll hacks feel out of place.
That said, I'm not opposed to troll hacks being on the site by any means. It's an understandable inclusion, just feels like an odd one, at least to me.
