Let me highlight something that was said by you(!) in the email I 
answered to:

...and then you proceed to talk something below that entirely contradicts 
what you said above?!?

I answered to what I thought that was a serious question from you but 
you seem to not care about the response in the first place.

Again, you're asking not so serious questions I suppose? Would you blame 
me again if I answer?

??? That's around 1000 using it already? Put that in contrast with only 
2.5k amenity=recycling, I don't think I agree with your claim that nobody 
would be using it!

playground=* is significantly newer than e.g. recycling:*=yes and 
considered micromapping by many. As such, I wouldn't expect very high 
numbers to appear on it except on very high quality mapped areas.

I think that others have given a reasonable answers to this already but 
you replied to them with ponies. Why did you bring up the ponies then? :-)
