Default Adding moss to compost

Is this wise?

Basically I've got some grass cuttings with some moss mixed in.

Don't worry about it. It'll rot down.

The moss is useful for hanging baskets if you intend to do any,
otherwise yes chuck it in and it will rot down.

Moss rots down into lovely compost (as I found out when I hadn't cleaned my
gutters out for 3 years) and the moss on my roof had been washed down into
them.
It looked good enough to grow seeds in.
