Does the OED proper have “moar" as an alternative spelling for “more”?

Wiktionary (https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/moar <https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/moar>) has an entry with the label(s) “Internet slang, humorous”.

The Urban Dictionary (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=moar <http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=moar>) gives it as an alternative for more and as a portmanteau of “more” and “roar”.
