But by the time I had started attending bar metal / punk shows like Ghoul, Toxic Holocaust, Prong, Kreator, Overkill, Golers, White Lung, and countless Vancouver local bands around ~2012 and beyond I never saw it in the pit again, and haven't to this day. I think that kind of moshing was either a trend for a while or is regional to certain scenes or something just seems to allude the shows I go to. Not even 1 guy, it's all normal pits or circle pits around these parts.

But I don't know, it's hard to say. I very rarely go to shows outside of the thrash / punk scene. I've never been to a post hardcore show or anything like that, I'd imagine it's still quite prevalent in that scene. As for my opinion on it, don't really care, if that's how pits are in a particular scene that's how they are, participate or don't.
Yeah I think it was a lot more prevalent in the early to late 2000s. I even used to do some of it, and it was pretty dangerous tbqh! I saw a girl get kicked right in the face once—she got a concussion and had to be taken out on a stretcher. I think it died out because it was dangerous to an extent, and since so many people became disenfranchised or started talking crap about it, I think it basically killed it off. Good riddance.

Great, I can't see the band unless I want to risk some meathead cracking my skull. Then there's a band like Lightning Bolt complaining the fans aren't giving them room. Yes, people push in because that's why they're there to see the show. So use this convenient little invention called a "stage". It helps people see the "show". I know you want to be equalitarianism and not higher than us peons but guess what? The only ones who can see you are the most gigantic meatheads flinging their arms around and knocking people over. See how that doesn't work??? And God at those huge metal shows even far from the stage people mosh? Good grief. I'd rather just metal out at home than put up with that garbage.
Lightning Bolt's shtick worked for their first ten years or so. Seeing them in a crowd of 50 people or so was amazing. Obviously it stopped working at some point, so they play on the stage at larger shows now.

I'm in that category of people who don't like being touched much at shows, I mean I go to enough punk shows that I tolerate it/know it's going to happen, but I will never join a pit and almost never help a crowd surfer unless I absolutely have no choice. I'm there to listen to and enjoy the music, not deal with kids who want to run and slam into each other in a circle pit.

Nay, I'm just not into cheesy, look-at-me type activities.
